Gmail: How to use aliases

02May07

Gmail: Help Center – Can I receive messages at a different Gmail address?

I’m finally giving Gmail a try, and was interested to find out that it supports mail aliases…sort of. Good enough to help filter out junk mail, and especially useful when signing up for various online services.

Can I receive messages at a different Gmail address?

Gmail doesn’t offer traditional aliases, but you can receive messages sent to your.username+any.alias@gmail.com. For example, messages sent to jane.doe+notes@gmail.com are delivered to jane.doe@gmail.com. You can set up filters to automatically direct these messages to Trash, apply a label or star, skip the inbox, or forward to another email account.
