How to Create Unlimited Gmail ID using Single Gmail ID

Create unlimited gmail idMany Gmail users are using Single Gmail Id to create multiple Gmail IDs to register on different sites and for other purposes. This is not a feature of Gmail but it an unexplained quirk which allows you to create unlimited Gmail id using the same single Gmail ID. It may come as a surprise to some people who have never known this Gmail trick. Fortunately, Gmail ignores periods (DOT) and + (PLUS) in Gmail ID, so if your email id is lex.morgan@gmail.com is same as lexmorgan@gmail.com or lexmorga.n@gmail.com. Ignoring Dot symbol or misplacing the Dot anywhere in email id will be treated as same. So if I am sending a mail on lexmorgan@gmail.com, it will receive on lex.morgan@gmail.com mail box.
