Google provides unlimited emails in one gmail address after a complication occurred with dot including email address and then they clarified that all dot including email accounts are same to their base name with no dots in them. But with it there are lot of other tricks a lot of people still don’t know.
Types of Google Accounts Versions
- Base Account i.e. like
- Dotted Address i.e. like
- Base Account with another domain
- Dotted Address with another domain
- Any of the above with Plus Sign
How to use these accounts
There are a lot of limitations on these accounts, but they aren’t from google. Well, you cannot signup with a new gmail account with address
firstname.lastname@example.org if you or someone has
email@example.com or vice versa.
Any gmail account which has
gmail.com at last can be replaced with
googlemail.com and emails will arrive on the same address.
Also, put dot anywhere before @ in gmail address but should be in between letters or numbers like
firstname.lastname@example.org works but
richardlive.@gmail.com is not valid.
You can also put multiple dots on various places in address but know that there cannot be more than one dot at the same place like
email@example.com is valid but
richard..firstname.lastname@example.org is not.
Another one is Plus Sign within gmail addresses, this one is a little different as dots works in between the username of address but plus works after the username and before the @ sign. To use plus sign see the example below.
Base Gmail Address is
You can create address like
email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
After the + sign you can add anything as before + the username should be correct.
