Live from Moscow – with more geeky news April 24, 2009

Posted by Steven in Innovation, Internal, The-Web.

First of all… I am writing these lines from Moscow. Undoubtfully an amazing city. I had such great experiences here so it is almost impossible to write about all of that now.

So I just decided not to write about Moscow specifically now. I am waiting for our great pictures anyway. So I am writing more geeky news which are kind-of important to me.

So Gmail: Everybody loves Google’s e-mail service. And I also think it is a great tool to use. Maybe Apple’s Mobile Me service may eventually become more important for me. But for now I am a Gmail user. As such I wondered if you can create aliases to fight of some automatically generated mail that you may need sometimes but can ignore most of the times.

And: Yes you can. This excellent post on the official Gmail Blog explains that you can add ‘dots’ and plus signs in your mail address and you basically have your alias.

The plus for example is useful to add random words to your address. You can easily use the newly created address in filters and tell those mailing lists addresses like:

Your real name: gmailuser@gmail.com
Your name for electronic mail that you don’t want to read always: gmailuser+lists@gmail.com

I think that is a very nice feature for getting your mail sorted automatically.
