gmail accounts with dots in names - fix it, please!!!


Recommended Posts

Well that would screw over people like me that have legit emails with dots in it.

my.name.email@gmail.com (not my real email but what it is with my actual name) basically. I've had my email since at least 2006 if not earlier.

My application linked above by @Paul E. does indeed handle this. In addition to being able to block registrations from disposable e-mail addresses, it supports detecting e-mail aliases from GSuite / GMail using the dot (foobar@gmail.com / foo.bar@gmail.com) syntax, as well as the plus alias syntax (foo@gmail.com / foo+bar@gmail.com).

I foresaw this being a potential for abuse long ago and implemented these measures to protect against them before it became commonplace 😉
