    That’s pretty useful when it comes to setting up new accounts or email filtering and categorising, but just for those accounts but it’s not a good fit for what I shared with you earlier. Because I want to actually use those email addresses with the given names and usernames. I thought it’s a way to manage different accounts under a main account.
    By the way, the Q&A method for writing a blog post seems like a rather short and straightforward way to write a handy blog post.

      Yes, exactly. That main account should be there, but for everything else, I think it works nicely.

      And, yes, it gets to the point much faster – which is usually best from the reader’s point of view.

      Dude, you should’ve read the Update at the end 😀

      Same thing, except instead of remembering the number, you know the name! 😀

        Hah! I glanced at the update and just noticed the highlighted examples! Didn’t see the “number” part!

    Looks like Google just recently got rid of the “+” ability in email addresses. I just tried to set up an email address with the “+” eg. [email protected] and the email was bounced back as an invalid email address when I did a test message.

      I just tried it and it worked fine. You don’t need to create a new email address.

      Let’s say this is your main email address: “[email protected]
      Then if you if you send an email to “[email protected]” you’ll still get it in your main inbox.

        yup. that’s what i did. it didn’t work for me. like i wrote previously, it DID work before not any more. not sure why.

        1. Behrouz Jafarnezhad February 27, 2015 at 12:15 am

          That’s weird! Did it bounce? Or it just didn’t arrive? Have you checked you archives folder?

          1. Riddlemethis February 27, 2015 at 12:18 am

            it bounced. clearly gave me an error message with the usual details. i tried different [email] accounts as well. i added amazon+[myemail]

            To be honest, I can’t explain this, but I tried it a few times and it work for me! #weird

            yes, it bounced and gave me an error message that the email was rejected from google’s server. however, i noticed something. instead of using “[email protected]” i tried “[email protected]” and it did work. go figure?!

            Oh, I thought I was clear in the update. Any combination of words or numbers ‘after’ your email address, not before it.
