Optional Dots
I’ll let you in on a little secret. You know those little dots in your Gmail address–like the one in ‘john.doe@gmail.com‘? Gmail doesn’t recognize them as part of your email address. That’s right, john.doe@gmail.com will receive all mail that’s sent to johndoe@gmail.com, joh.n.doe@gmail.com, and even john………..doe@gmail.com or j.o.h.n.d.o.e@gmail.com. It’s an interesting quirk of Gmail, and one that you can use to your advantage.

Suppose that you want an easy way to separate business e-mail from personal e-mail, without having to individually label each message. Simply give your business clients the e-mail address “john.doe@gmail.com,” and give friends and family “johndoe@gmail.com.” Messages sent to either address will come to your inbox, and you can set up a filter that automatically labels messages sent to “john.doe@gmail.com” as “business.”

Wow, didn’t think of filtering via #9. Click on the ginormous Gmail image to jump to the article.
