Quick tips: Gmail

Did you know Gmail lets you add tags to your emails? Let’s say your email is johnsmith@gmail.com. You could also use johnsmith+dubioussite@gmail.com to subscribe to a site, and the emails would still reach your inbox.

Since you filter emails by destination address, you could create a filter that automatically assigns a tag to those emails, or deletes them. Moreso, if you subscribe to freeemoticons.com with johnsmith+freeemoticons@gmail.com, and you start receiving spam destined to that email, you know who to blame.

It’s also good to know that Gmail doesn’t check dots in email adresses, so john.s.m.i.t.h@gmail.com will reach johnsmith@gmail.com‘s inbox
