Depends on your email service
Authored by: lowbatteries on Mar 16, '11 08:45:23AM

I suggest to try it with your own email before proceeding. It is known to work with Google and MobileMe, and with Yahoo you use a hyphen instead of a plus.

Depends on your email service
Authored by: everkleer80 on Mar 16, '11 09:39:12AM

I usually use this when I enter my email address on websites, in an attempt to try to identify where some of my spam is coming from. I don't know about the other services, but I know in gmail that you can also put periods anywhere in your username and still have the email get to you (ex. myuser.nam.e@gmail.com goes to myusername@gmail.com.) This is at least somewhat useful when sites will not accept a '+' in the username - I just keep a record of where I have used which username.
