Crazy Tricks to Play with Gmail Account

imageDid you know the periods in your Gmail address don't mean a thing? That's right, if you signed up as
Hacking.University@gmail.com, you'd still get emails sent to HackingUniversity@gmail.com. You'll even get emails sent to H.a.c.k.i.n.g.U.n.i.v.e.r.s.i.t.y@gmail.com, and the best thing that instead of @Gmail.com you can also use @Googlemail.com
You can also add a plus sign to the end of your address, and then you can set up folders in your email that coordinate with that.
For instance, say you open an online account with any Bank. When you sign up, give your email address as "HackingUniversity+banking@gmail.com", then in Settings, set up a filter. In the From box, add in Banks Name or your chosen bank, in the To box, put in your newly-created HackingUniversity+banking@gmail.com address, and the set the filter to put in a folder titled "banking." You can also use this technique when you sign up for something and send their emails to you directly to the trash!
