Gmail has wonderful features. One of the best feature of Gmail is able to create multiple email ids from single email.

The DOT Feature

Using the DOT . feature in Gmail you can create multiple id’s for login/registrations where sites limit the service to 1 per email.

For example the

email [email protected] = [email protected] = [email protected]

Emails sent at all these address will reach at on single email [email protected]

About this Google says

Gmail doesn’t recognize dots as characters within usernames, you can add or remove the dots from a Gmail address without changing the actual destination address; they’ll all go to your inbox, and only yours

There are 2 more similar features in gmail called theĀ + feature and theĀ GOOGLEMAIL feature which can be used in similar ways.
