    Default Email Riddler & Gmail Alias

    Email Riddler (online tool)
    http://www.dynamicdrive.com/emailriddler/



    I need to encrypt my gmail address and i'd like to use an alias like userID+blog@gmail.com but email riddler doesn't work with +...

    some suggestions?

    thanx...

    Is "+" actually a valid character for an email address? I thought it wasn't, but if it is, I'll modify the email riddler tool to accept this character...

    Thank you so much!

    yes, you can use "+" to add an alias to your gmail address so you can create filters, fight spam and so on...

    see this...

    I love Gmail for it's flexibility.

    Say for example my email address was e.x.ample@gmail.com -

    Sending to mail to any of the following would arrive in my inbox:
    example@gmail.com
    ex.am.ple@gmail.com
    ex.ample+test1@gmail.com

    Whenever I sign up for untrusted sites (when bugmenot.com fails me), I just put +spam at the end and then put a filter on the to: field.

    Very handy.

    Wow I never knew that about gMail cr3ative. Very interesting.

    zoomusicgirl, I'll look into the matter, and once the Email Riddler tool has been updated, post an update in this thread.

    Ok, Email Riddler has been modified to accept "+" in the username portion. If there are any other problems, please just post here.
