Gmail is a free, advertising-supported email service provided by the tech giant Google. Users can access Gmail as secure webmail, as well as via POP3 or IMAP4 protocols. Gmail was initially started as an invitation-only beta release on April 1, 2004, and it became available to the general public on February 7, 2007.

Soon it added more features, more space and turned out to one of the best email service provider ever. Many webmail services support only a single authentication system to verify senders and help identify forged messages. While, Gmail makes use of multiple authentication systems, including SPF (Sender Policy Framework), DomainKeys, and DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail), so you can be more certain that your mail is from whom it says it’s from.

Getting Googlemail.com Email address

Well, there is no trick for that, by default when you create a Gmail account, you actually get two email addresses – one is the regular you@gmail.com address while the second email address has you@googlemail.com in the domain.

That means that when an email is sent to you@googlemail.com it will also be delivered to you@gmail.com.

Use a Googlemail.com Address to Combat Spam

Knowing this trick can give you a stronger hand when you fight against spam and all other not-so-important but distracting email. You can give out you@googlemai.com email address only to one who is important or close contacts, while using a gmail.com email address for other stuff

However, you will need to create a filter plus label in your gmail account, so that all important emails are labeled, and you never miss any. This trick is especially useful for those who receive many email in a day so that he or she can filter out the special one.
