iCloud e-mail tagging
Authored by: dilvish1984 on Oct 22, '12 10:47:59AM

This hint is a useful reminder that such tagging is possible, but hasn't this method long been possible on many email accounts? It's a result of relatively standard email address processing, in that any text that follows a symbol such as "+" will just be ignored by all the email server routing software and only interpreted at the destination domain, usually as a tag (according to Wikipedia, at least).
