Gmail.Surprise

November 6, 2007 at 1:58 pm 1 comment

I logged into my gmail account this morning and had received a letter from someone I have never met before in my life. I was invited to a party for her daughter and granddaughter in San Jose. Needless to say I was confused as to why I had received the invite. In the TO: field, I saw ‘steveconroy’, although my gmail username is ‘steve.conroy’. I’ve always thought that mattered, but according to google there is no difference between steveconroy, steve.conroy, or s.t.e.v.e.c.o.n.r.o.y. Gmail does not recognize dots (.) as part of the username and therefore any mail sent to any of those accounts come to me. Interesting.

Update

The next time some annoying sales person asks me for my email address, I plan on responding “it’s steve…………….c.o.n.r.o.y…… at gmail.com.”
