Gmail gives you a second id without asking


Today I received a spam mail and it wasn’t addressed to me, somehow it escaped ’s mail spam filters and reached my inbox. When I opened to see the mail it wasnt addressed to my mail id instead it was a id very similar to my id just without the ‘.’ dot.

And later learned that reserves all combinations of the name when we create our account. So if I create an account with mr.x@.com, it reserves mrx@.com and even m.rx@.com. So any mail addressed to these ids will reach you !!

Original id  :  mr.x@gmail.com

Automatically created ids : mrx@gmail.com , m.rx@gmail.com
