How To Track Email Spam With GMail
If you are anything like me you will find your email inbox littered with spam. Even though GMail is pretty good at spotting spam, and getting better all the time, On the odd occasion some spam will still get through.
luckily GMail have a "feature" that will let you track which sites are spamming you, which sites are selling your email address and which sites are compromising your personal information.
Here's how it works. When you enter your GMail address on a site or registration form, For instance domain.com, don't enter firstname.lastname@example.org. Enter email@example.com as your email address. GMail will still send the email to the firstname.lastname@example.org account but it will use the address email@example.com. GMail will use whatever comes before the + symbol as the email account to send the message to.
Essensially, this means you can have multiple email addresses, One for every online form you fill in, All in the one account.
So over time, By using this method, You will be able to easily find the email spam offenders.
I don't think GMail done this specifically to track spam, So if you have any other handy ways of using this feature please post them.
