How to create multiple email addresses on Gmail

Since e-mail has established itself as the most convenient and quick means of communication for users, Gmail offers the possibility to create even more addresses for the service. For those interested, the email service provided by Big G grants the option to create more mail accounts to have more in order messages. Anyone, for convenience, who is interested in creating a Gmail account for work and another for personal use can do so without problems. At the same time, however, it is also possible to use several different addresses without necessarily having to associate a different one for each account, in order to make the service even more convenient. No impossible procedure, in fact, just work on the username to be able to get a mailbox that is more tidy and therefore allows a better organization of the messages received and sent.

Separate username with dots

Often and willingly, those who use the Gmail service are unaware of the possibility of being able to create multiple email addresses using a single Google account. Instead of creating a new account for any different purpose, you can actually alter your personal address, and especially the part about your username. To better understand we talk about that part of text that precedes the snail and that therefore predates the domain name. Using the points within the username, in a non-consecutive way, to make sure that each different address is associated with a specific purpose. When you register on a site, then, you can indicate your Gmail email address by entering one or more points in the part related to the username. All communications from that site, in this way, can be properly sorted based on the content of the field “A:” (recipient). Through the filters that Google makes available you will manage in an agile way, for example, all incoming emails with the same structure with regard to the name of the user.

Create endless email addresses thanks to the “+” symbol

The method just tackled is without doubt useful but is however limiting, since the number of variants is finite and the addresses to be exploited, in business, turn out not to be sufficient. How can I solve the problem? Simple, just add a nice + to the final part of the username and you’re done. The string added after the + symbol can be chosen freely and always with the possibility of using points in addition, according to your needs. We can consider this method as a kind of labeling for messages, useful to instruct the mail client or the Google webmail to manage incoming emails based on the content in the recipient field. Also in this case you will have to play with the filters of the Web version of Gmail, automatically assigning one or more labels to all messages marked by the name of the recipient in the form indicated.
