Gmail + email address
In Gmail, you get a specific email address. Let's say:
You can also use a plus to receive certain emails:
These will arrive in your regular mailbox!
That is already very cool. You can use it to sign into one service with the same address (Twitter personal + business)
But we are using it to put emails in specific categories!
Gmail + sign filter
First, go to the filter section and add a new filter:
- Filters and Blocked Addresses
- Create a new Filter
Within this filter, type the email address in the
Create filter button
Then we can set up our filter however we like. In my case, I'm only sending these emails to a specific category, but you could also mark them as read, for instance.
That's it! Emails send to
firstname.lastname@example.org will now end up in my Social category.
Have fun, and create some amazing filters to make your life easier! 😙
