Using Gmail mailbox for multiple accounts
Did you have a case when you have to create multiple accounts for specific service (e.g. iTunesConnect, Twitter, etc)? During development / testing process you definitely need this and the problem here that you need new mailbox each time.
Another case which is more popular when you are developer/QA/PM of the web based project and you have to use different account on different environments (e.g. Dev/Staging/Production).
There are couple tricks available in Gmail that will make your life easier:
1) If you have address like firstname.lastname@example.org you should know that you can also use dots within address before «@» and all emails will come to your email account! (examples are email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, etc).
2) The option above will allow you to create multiple accounts with different addresses however they are still limited. The shorter address you have — the lower limit will be. What is the solution in this case? You should use any additional word combination before «@» and add plus («+») before your actual name.
Example: your address is firstname.lastname@example.org
You may also use email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, etc
