I use GMAIL with out any dot in my account name.

I receive Emails which are intended to me and also some of emails which are intended to some one else.

For example, [email protected] is my Email ID.
But I receive emails of the accounts with (.) dot, [email protected], [email protected]

My query is, do they receive my emails also in their mail box?
I mean, the Eamil ID users [email protected] OR [email protected] also receive emails which are intended to the id [email protected] ?

I never tested it, hence asking this query.
PS: None of the email ids above are used by me, they are just example.

it’s not “others” eek
all are you only smile
the dot before the @
in gmail is meaningless to their server
but YOU CAN filter emails using that
like if you give r.a.m.a.d.e.s.i.dime
to some site and even if they give their
dbase to marketing spammers or themselves misuse
you can route all emails addressed to “r.a.m.a.d.e.s.i.dime at gmail.com” to a junk folder.
i am just saying, did not ever need to try it myself.
there is also a feature on gmail that “reply from the same address to which email was sent”
or something like that
if that option is kept to ON
then when you use “reply” / “reply all”
your sender ID will change to the same dot combo as in received email wink

Does Google let users sign up new accounts by using the dot trick?
I think it only works for other sites where you enter your Gmail Id

Gmail doesnt allow signup

They don’t have their gmail account with dot in your email address. Means.. there is no other gmail account associated with [email protected] email address or [email protected]. Only yours, so nobody except you and Google (of course) can read your emails. Don’t worry.

the dot / dots in the login ID of a google account serve NO PURPOSE to their servers
(for logon purpose)
andro.game = androgame = a.n.d.r.o.g.a.m.e
while logging in you can (i think) use any and still log on even if at time of registration the combo used was different.

using same formula, many sites also ignore the dot in gmail addresses
(i mean, on many sites if one tries [email protected] and if [email protected] was already registeted then the site throws error that the email is already registered)

Just now , I tested it.

1)The original Eamil account will receive all mails which are sent to ANY dot email ID.
Means, [email protected] will receive all mails. The DOT email accounts will not receive it.

2)I just created a new email with DOT. That means, we can create the email account but, it will not receive Emails.
3)You can not login into the DOT email. It points to the email ID/password without DOT.

So, DOT will not effect the original Email IDs.

If you have [email protected] another person cant create id with [email protected]

That’s not true.
I personally use gmail account with a dot in the name. Google allowed it back when I created it, not sure if it does now.
@ramadesidime Every email id is Unique in nature and just because emails intended to you also have [email protected] as a recipient doesn’t mean they also get to see other emails of yours. The owners of those email accounts (with dot) at most get only those emails in which they are also recipients along with you. These emails are generally sent by spammers who pick up (or buy) your email from somewhere else and market their own products, services and all shit. I also get lot of such crap.
Rest assured your other emails are safe with you.

Ok. Thanks.

I also, have one more problem .
I receive emails (of DOT) in my email account which contains bank statements, CC statements and mobile bill statements.
Once I called those guys over phone, they are least bothered.
I went to those banks, they are also least bothered.

I personally want avoid those emails since it is a security breach.
Suddenly realized that they also may be getting my emails, hence posted it here.

[email protected] and [email protected] are same address.
So if you send a mail at [email protected] it will land into [email protected]

It is applicable to GMail accounts, however, if you are using Google Suite ( which runs on GMail ) it will not work.

Apart from this, Google offers a very good feature of aliasing with + sign.

It ignores everything after + sign.
For example, if you your email ID is [email protected] and if you send a mail at [email protected] … mails will reach to [email protected]

There is nothing you can do if you are receiving emails of others in your accounts. Consider these as spam and forget it.
Check emails of your statements to find if they have any other recipient in TO or CC field other than yourself. If not, you’re safe. It yes, call your bank (or concerned party) immediately and bring this to their attention. I don’t think banks usually send statements to multiple emails. They send it to the one on file. Such emails with statements (that you mentioned) may be coming from hackers on the lookout for your personal data.
Try never replying to these (statement type) emails with any of your personal info. Your data may get compromised.

Point 2 is wrong
You can not create another account by just adding a dot

Nope you cant ie. if [email protected] already exists you cant make [email protected], however if it doesnt you are allowed to make [email protected] or [email protected] either way they are same email ids.

Dots don’t matter in Gmail addresses

If someone accidentally adds dots to your address when emailing you, you’ll still get that email.
For example, if your email is [email protected], you own all dotted versions of your address:

[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]

Note: If you use Gmail through work, school, or other organization (like yourdomain.com or yourschool.edu), dots do change your address. To change the dots in your username, contact your admin.

No one else gets your emails

No one can take your username
Your Gmail address is unique. If anyone tries to create a Gmail account with a dotted version of your username, they’ll get an error saying the username is already taken.

For example, if your address is [email protected], no one can sign up for [email protected].

No one sees your mail

Your account is still private and secure. Emails sent to any dotted version of your address will only go to you.

For example, [email protected] and [email protected] are the same address and go to one inbox.

What to do if you get someone else’s mail

Adding dots doesn’t change your address, so dots aren’t why you got someone else’s mail. Instead, the sender probably mistyped or forgot the correct address.

For example, if someone meant to email [email protected] but typed [email protected], the message went to you because you own [email protected].

It allowed me and I created the email id with DOT in the morning. However, it did not allow me to login, prompted me invalid password. But when I typed the my original password, it logged into my original email id without DOT.

As some one mentioned, google is insensitive to DOT.

Thanks all for your valuable information.
