Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you. Gmail does not recognize the . in a gmail user name ever. So with or without it it will be sent to the same account.

Ask Your Own Email Question

If the sender added dots to your address, you'll still get that email. No one else sees your emails, and no one can take your account. For example, if your email is *****@******.***, you own all dotted versions of your address:

  • *****@******.***
  • *****@******.***
  • *****@******.***

If you still think the message was meant for someone else, contact the sender to let them know they mistyped the email address.

Usually this happens when someone has a similar gmail address to you and they give it out to people incorrectly. But as I said google does not recognize the . as shown in the example above. My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating for providing you a quick answer! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
