Every now and then you stumble upon a nugget of pure gold on the internet. This is a great little bit of info which I found out about in a Slashdot comment.

Ever wished that you could have two or more email addresses? Well wish no more! This little trick works with Gmail and other MTAs as well.

The trick? This little character here --> +

If I'd like to give out an email address and use it to filter on (for example) I can give out and it will be delivered to my inbox. In fact, I can put anything after the "+" that is allowed in a normal email address. See? Pretty darn cool isn't it?

That is a cool tip. I have heard people who have their own domains who create "disposable" email addresses for this sort of thing. This is better. Hopefully the spammers don't pick up on it tho, they could easily remove it.
