MINI-HACK: Have You Run Out of Email Addresses For Testing?

0  comments

Lately, we’ve been doing a lot of testing on the Time Traders Club site. We are rolling out something that you will REALLY like.  In order to make sure everything was working we needed to sign up again and again.

I have a dozen email addresses but I needed to keep testing.  That’s when I discovered a cool tip from Gmail.

You can create additional e-mail addresses by adding a + sign.  So, messages sent to meredithe+test1@gmail.com  go to meredithe@gmail.com.  You can set filters on these messages to label them, send them to another e-mail or just direct them to Trash.

Databases (like e-mail sign up forms) count each + variation as a different address.  You will never run out of addresses again.

Happy testing.
