You may be familiar with the old “plus sign trick” where you can add a plus sign followed by anything you like to the local part (the part before the @ sign) of your Gmail address, and it will be delivered to your main email address.

I’ve used that trick for years (on sites that support it—not all do) but wondered if the same trick would work in my work G Suite (formerly Google Apps) account. A quick test shows that it does!

Because not all sites support the email standard properly, it has limited usefulness as a central part of your communication, but if, like me, you need to test an email subscription form with new, valid email addresses over and over, it definitely comes in handy.
