    In addition to the Mac-Forums Community Guidelines, there are a few things you should pay attention to while in The Lounge.

    Lounge Rules
    • If your post belongs in a different forum, please post it there.
    • While this area is for off-topic conversations, that doesn't mean that every conversation will be permitted. The moderators will, at their sole discretion, close or delete any threads which do not serve a beneficial purpose to the community.

    Understand that while The Lounge is here as a place to relax and discuss random topics, that doesn't mean we will allow any topic. Topics which are inflammatory, hurtful, or otherwise clash with our Mac-Forums Community Guidelines will be removed.

email management by changing username



A while ago I read an article that mentioned there were online email services that allowed you to prepend a word to your email address and still get the email.

For example: if I was [email protected] I could sign up here as [email protected] (or whatever) and still get the email delivered.

At the time I didn't need that, but now I do. That trick has a name, and if I knew what it was called I could google for services that offer it, and how to use it.

So does anyone know what that technique is called? Or who offers it?

I vaguely recall that gmail might, but without knowing what it's called I've had no luck finding instructions or a how-to.
