Turn one email address into multiple task-specific addresses

" "

Tips

If you don’t want to create multiple accounts or aliases for specific tasks, just add a plus sign (+) and any word before the @ sign in your current address.

Messages will still reach you, and you’ll have an infinite amount of emails for different purposes.

Examples

If your G Suite email address is cassy@solarmora.com, you can:

  • Sign up for newsletters with cassy+news@solarmora.com.
  • Let prospective clients or customers contact cassy+questions@solarmora.com.
  • Allow team members to surface urgent issues in your inbox by contacting cassy+urgent@solarmora.com.

You can even combine these addresses with filters to automatically label and sort your messages.

For instance, filters can automatically archive and apply the News label to all incoming newsletters sent to cassy+news@solarmora.com. When you're ready to read them, click News in your list of labels to find them.

Use your task-specific email addresses" "

Just add a plus sign (+) and any word before the @ sign in your address.

For example, if your email address is cassy@solarmora.com, use cassy+news@solarmora.com or cassy+urgent@solarmora.com.
