    The fact you fail to point out that you have to format the alias (existing add + alias +, identifies the article as a far from rare example of pitiful instructions that fail in their primary function, showing folk how to do things. From day one, so often my hopeless inadequacy with regards to pc use is compounded by inaccurate, incomplete, incomprehensible, or whatever the failing may be, instructions/guides that do absolutely nothing to temper my ignorance. I suggest more consideration be given to the objective of writing the piece + to try to make sure the intended knowledge is actually passed on, which in this case, sadly, it isn’t.
    I hope you’re able to accept criticism, which I feel is surely justified + not an attack of any sort towards any person. My motivation for commenting is solely the wish for an improvement in the resources I’ve described, no other reason.
    I’d like to finish by adding that I’m familiar with criticism concerning the need to do better, I’m vastly experienced, in fact, my wealth having been bestowed upon me by my ex-wife!!!!……..

      Sorry for the confusion it has caused. What we mean here by having multiple alias in gmail is you can use single mailbox but with different identities or email addresses. The ‘plus’ alias trick you are talking will be easily caught by anyone who knows of this Gmail feature. Also, adding a ‘plus’ to your gmail address works when you are giving away your email address to someone, like signing up for a service. But you cannot send the email with a ‘plus’ in it.

    And how do you do this for android gmail. I have this set up on my PC gmail and it has been working for years. It was working on my old phone but on the new phone and newer version of android it no longer works.

      Gmail’s Android app does not have all the features that are available in Desktop version. So, as a workaround, you can open gmail in your mobile browser, select desktop-mode or enable ‘requst desktop site’ settings. Once, the gmail opens normally, proceed with steps as shown in the article.

    The instructions here are clear and easy to follow but Google just makes things difficult. This doesn’t create an alias. The box only says treat the email address as an alias. You have to already have that email account created in order to get the verification code. I’ve had alias emails in outlook and they don’t work like this. You own one outlook account but you can create up to 5, I believe, different names for it without having to create all those other email accounts. Google is getting worse and worse.
