Did you know that you can use multiple email addresses with your Gmail account?

If you have ever needed to sign up for more than one account somewhere, this is a great solution. I find this super handy if I need to set up a quick test account or set up a Twitter account or something for one of my clients and don’t want to tie up my main email address.

Gmail does not recognise periods (dots) as characters in your email address, so we can take advantage of this. For example, if my email address is nikkiphilliscreative@gmail.com then I could use

– nikki.phillis.creative@gmail.com or
– nikkiphillis.creative@gmail.com or even
– n.ikkiphilliscreative@gmail.com

All emails sent to these variations will go to the original account. Simple!
