Here is how to create multiple email addresses and still have only one email mailbox to visit.
In the beginning...
- You send an email [To] ABCTampaBay@mailg.com
- It is delivered to my Gmail account
- I log into Google, go to Gmail mailbox, then open and read your message
Additional Email Addresses
Delivered to the same mailbox
Addresses can be filtered
Another reason why you might want to start using "+ addresses" is that you can filter messages.
For example, you can create a filter that tests for "TO contains TechSupport@mailg.com" then move that message into its own folder.
I added a membership plugin to a WordPress site, and it requires unique email addresses for members.
Did you notice the +Test1, +Test2, +Test3 and +Test4 addresses in my list?
That allowed me to add four accounts and still meet the "unique email address" requirement. Five accounts if you add one without a plus.
Then, when it came time to test them, the tests were all delivered to one existing Gmail mailbox.
Publishing these addresses
You can add a plus symbol to an existing email address and anything after that will be ignored ... but the message will still be delivered! You can publish the address, use it to create accounts, or use it in a website contact form.
