Creating unlimited free email addresses in Gmail

Question:
I would like to set up a few test accounts and customer in GetFiveStars, but I only have one email and I don’t want to sign up for a bunch of email accounts.


Answer:
Sign up for a free “Gmail” account. Or maybe you already have one.

Every regular Gmail account allows you to create unlimited unique variations of your email address. This is known as the “Gmail +” trick.


Here is how the Gmail + trick works:
Assuming you own the following Gmail address: superagency@gmail.com
You can add a “+” (plus) sign to your email followed by anything you want.

Example:
superagency+test@gmail.com
superagency+reviews@gmail.com
superagency+customer@gmail.com
superagency+social@gmail.com
superagency+IloveGetFiveStars@gmail.com

The possibilities are endless. All these emails will be delivered to your regular superagency@gmail.com inbox, but will contain the “To” and “From” prefix that you have chosen.

Example of different “To” and “From” emails using the “+” addition:
gmail-to

gmail-from
