It's even worse than it appears..

  • The other day I asked how to get nearly free and easy mail accounts. Turns out Gmail does it. #
  • Add a + after your name and then add any string you like. #
  • You can also add or omit periods in the middle of your name.#
  • All these "addresses" go to the same account, but perhaps the system you want to create multiple accounts on will accept them as different names?#
  • See the writeup on the Google blog from 2008.#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
