Use Gmail to Create Unlimited Email Addresses

Quickly identify the source of spam email.

Are you tired of receiving spam to your primary email address? Have you ever wanted to create a 2nd account somewhere without creating a whole new email address?

With a Gmail account, you can create as many additional email addresses as you want using your primary address. This can be useful when you want to sign up for a new account or investigate which service may have shared your information with spam marketers.

How to Create Additional Gmail Addresses

There are a couple of easy ways to get started creating additional Gmail addresses. One method involves adding a “+” to your email address; the other method simply adds a “.” to your email address.

For example, if you wish to add a “+” to your email, you could make [email protected] into [email protected] As long as the + is after your name but before the “@” it should work. Not all companies allow you to include the plus in your email address when you sign up, so you can try the other method of adding a “.” to your Gmail address.

If you want to add the “.” to your email, you would take [email protected] and change it to [email protected] or [email protected] Simply add the “.” to anywhere in your current email address, before the “@”.

The best part about both of these methods is that the emails all go directly into your current Gmail account, so you don’t have to worry about setting up multiple Gmail accounts every time you want to sign up for a new service. This is a great way to figure out where your spam emails are coming from. If you sign up for a Hulu account with something like [email protected], and you start receiving spam email with this address, you’ll know that the information has been leaked by Hulu.
