Hi Everyone,

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.

See it.

different gmail ids of the same persons email id
different gmail ids of the same persons 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 abcdef@gmail.com then even a.b.c.e.d.e.f@gmail.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.
