Did you know that there are quite a few ways by which you can create multiple email addresses inside one Gmail account? You may ask why would you need multiple addresses?
The idea is that, you can register on different services, websites with unique email addresses. Or you may create addresses for each section of your company. In fact you can have many different email addresses, but all the mails sent to these will be received in your primary Gmail address inbox. Then you can create a filter for each custom email address associated with your Gmail account and easily organize emails from different services.
Let’s say our primary email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org

Let’s say you want to create a custom address for the Marketing department. All you need to do is just add the keyword “marketing” after your email address separated by a “+”, like this: email@example.com then offer this address to those who request it. The same way can be done when you create a new account on any online service, for example registering on Amazon just write in the form, the email firstname.lastname@example.org and create a filter in your mail box to separate messages which you get on this email.
[dropcap type=”1″]1[/dropcap]Dots Method
The idea is that Gmail doesn’t care about hou many dots you have in your email address. Hmmmm, let me guess. You didn’t knew about this? This means you can place any number of dots within your Gmail address before the @tag and Gmail will ignore them, but still send the mails to your original email address.
As an example:
(our address is: email@example.com)
- and more…
All these addresses still point to your primary Gmail address firstname.lastname@example.org

The last tip just combines both methods the Plus method and the Dots method. You can create even more addresses like:
