The Digital Inspiration blog points out a Gmail trick that’s been just under the surface all along. Everyone who has an “email@example.com” address can also receive mail sent to “firstname.lastname@example.org.” What’s the big deal? Well, knowing this gives you a stronger hand when you fight against spam, bacn, and all that other not-so-important but distracting email. Try giving out one or the other addresses to important, close contacts, while using the other for all the other stuff. What uses can you think of (or have used already) for this trick? Offer up the advice in the comments.
