1. There is no importance of (.) Dot in gmail address: If you see any dot to someone’s gmail address, you may avoid that easily. If someone’s email address is ‘JohnDoe@Gmail.com’, you could write it as ‘John.Doe@Gmail.com’. Even you could write ‘J.o.h.n.D.o.e.@Gmail.com’ if you want to. It’s not going to make any difference here.
2. Get the mail back: By using the free boomerang app of gmail, you can send emails which can get back after a certain time. Even you can set the time period for it. If the receiver does not open your email within that time period, it will get back to you automatically.
3. Know who spreads your mail: If you put a + (plus) sign in your email then you will be able to know who spreads your email. Suppose that, you have to open an account on a shopping website. But you want to see that if your mail gets spread to the spammers through that site. In this case, you can use this + (plus) sign. If your email address is JohnDoe@Gmail.com, you can write JohnDoe+Shopping@Gmail.com as an example.
