There are at least two ways to add an alias to Gmail. Let’s review both of them.
Gmail has a built-in alias mechanism that allows adding dots and pluses to the name of the box. Let's take a look at these features using examples: Let's say you're the owner of [email protected].
If we write letters to [email protected], [email protected] or even [email protected] - they will come to you correctly to the original email [email protected]. Gmail ignores dots in mailboxes. But there are several limitations:
The "+" symbol can be added after the name of the box, adding any other name after it. For example, you can send an email to boxes [email protected], email@example.com, and they will reach the original box.
Using both a dot and an email, you can't completely change your email address, but they are very convenient for filtering incoming emails. For example, to order a product on a website, you can leave an email to [email protected] and use the filter to mark incoming emails to this alias in a separate label or delete them. Unfortunately, not all registration forms allow you to enter a "+" in the email field. In this case, using a point (".") in the alias may help.
If you already have another email, we can add it as an alias to our Gmail.

We will now be receiving emails from a connected mailbox. When you create a new email, in the "To:" field, you can choose from which address to send it.
