TIP: Create unlimited unique task-specific email addresses with Gmail


Gmail Article: https://support.google.com/a/users/answer/9308648?hl=en



Q: Do you want unique Gmail email addresses without having to create multiple Gmail accounts or aliases for specific tasks?

A: Simply add a plus sign (+) and any word before the @ sign in your current email address.

Messages will still reach you, and you’ll have an infinite amount of emails for different purposes.



If your Google Workspace email address is test@tester.com, then you can:

  • Sign up for newsletters with test+news@tester.com.
  • Let prospective clients or customers contact test+questions@tester.com.
  • Allow team members to surface urgent issues in your inbox by contacting test+urgent@tester.com.

You can even combine these addresses with filters to automatically label and sort your messages. (read more below)

For instance, filters can automatically archive and apply the News label to all incoming newsletters sent to test+news@tester.com.

When you're ready to read them, click News in your list of labels to find them.
