Nearly limitless email address variations with one Gmail account.

This is not a new feature, but one that I recently discovered.

With a single gmail account yourname@gmail.com you can instantly set up many many more.  How?  The Magic lies in how Google handles extra characters in the username.

If your gmail = yourname@gmail.com  then all of the following variations below will flow into your email account

your.name@ gmail.com
yourname+kidsschool@gmail.com
yourname+retalierwebsite@gmail.com
yourname+twitter1@gmail.com

and so on.

The other side of this is the ability to set up filers in gmail based on this.  So you can choose to auto-delete emails or file them away, or apply a label to them.  Like I said, not a new tip, but handy all the same
