GMail – got someone else’s email into your Inbox
Today i got a mail on my gmail id but i checked email id it was not mine.
But it was there in my inbox and there was a nice message after that email id which looks like my email id.
Yes. This is the text which i saw after that email id looking like my email id but with 2-3 dots (.) in that email id and i followed the link to “Learn more” about this thing.
And i was shocked to see the result.
Gmail doesn’t recognize dots as characters within usernames, you can add or remove the dots from a Gmail address without changing the actual destination address; they’ll all go to your inbox, and only yours.
so if your email id is firstname.lastname@example.org then even email@example.com is also yours.
All these addresses belong to the same person. You can see this if you try to sign in with your username, but adding or removing a dot from it. You’ll still go to your account.
It was really amazing thing for me.
What about you ?
You were aware of this thing before ?
