Many email hosts will let you add a number or text after the email name followed by a “+” and before the “@” sign so you can create multiple unique email addresses for testing.
e.g. one of my email addresses is firstname.lastname@example.org; I can also use email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com etc.
I have tested this on 4 different hosts so far and the following allow this:
- google hosted emails (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com)
- icloud (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Hotmail/outlook (email@example.com)
- I also understand it works on yahoo but I’ve not tested it
The following do not allow this:
- British telecom hosted email accounts
I’m trying to compile a list of hosts that allow this so if you use a different host for your email (e.g. GoDaddy etc) and it works (or doesn’t), can you please send me an email at support@buildyourinternetbusiness, add a comment below or click on the support tab and leave a message?
