Quick and Easy Email Aliases with Gmail
Posted Saturday December 22, 2012 at 12:07:09 am in Technology
Sick of having to create a new email address whenever you want to associate a specific email address to a service?
Well, if you're a Gmail user, it's particularly easy to create an alias. Actually, it's so easy that you don't even have to create one. You can immediately use one with zero setup whatsoever.
Per the folks over at Google:
Gmail doesn't offer traditional aliases, but you can receive messages sent to email@example.com. For example, messages sent to firstname.lastname@example.org are delivered to email@example.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.
