This question already has an answer here:

For a while now I've been using the "+" notation when signing up for things using my gmail account. What I mean by that is, for Charter, for example, I would sign up as myusername+charter@gmail.com so that I can sort through spam later to see where certain leaks came through. The catch is, though, that I don't know how to search for emails sent to myusername+*@gmail.com.

I'm using the default gmail webmail interface, so when I search for myusername+ it appears to internally interpret that as myusername AND. I tried using backslash as an escape, but that didn't really work either as it appears to return things that contain myusername and +.

  • Maybe to:'myusername+charter@gmail.com'? – Andrew Li May 14 '17 at 1:18
  • That might work for just those sent to charter, but I'm looking for anything that is myusername+*@gmail.com - I don't know for certain that any leaks occurred or even what all different organizations I've done it for. I'd always figured I could search it. – mredig May 14 '17 at 1:32
  • Maybe to ['myusername+' @ gmail.com] – SleepingGod May 14 '17 at 9:50
