TIP  1

Do you know that your Gmail account has TWO email addresses? One is your regular email like your-name@Gmail.com and second is your-name@Googlemail.com.

That means when you sign up for a Gmail account you are getting TWO email addresses. Emails sent to anyone of them will be dropped in your Gmail inbox. You can use one for friends and another address for official use.

 

TIP  2

Manage your Gmail account using Gmail Plus. By adding a ‘+’ sign between your ‘<my-name/ID>’ and ‘@Gmail.com’ like in my-name+website@Gmail.com,

My-name+alias-name@Gmail.com or my-name+newsletter@Gmail.com. The names website, alias-name and newsletter are three Gmail aliases used along with your Gmail ID with + sign, which will deliver messages to your same inbox. You can add any word after your Gmail ID with ‘Plus’ sign in between.

This Gmail alias can be handy when you are signing up on some website or subscribing for a newsletter.
