Plus Addressing is a feature of SmarterMail that allows you to automatically filter
your incoming email without creating content filtering rules first.
Assume your email address is email@example.com, and you want to sign up for a newsletter
called ACME News. Furthermore, you want that newsletter to go to a folder in your
email called "ACME". Assuming you have plus addressing enabled, all you have to do is sign up for the newsletter with the plus
address myname+ACME@example.comNote: When writing the plus address, make sure the folder name is listed after the username but before the @example.com.
When the newsletter gets delivered to your email, it will automatically be placed
in an ACME folder, which will be created automatically if it does not already exist. No additional steps
are required. The whole process is automatic once you enable the feature.
If you include the "/" character in your plus address, you can automatically
create sub-folders. For example, the plus address myname+Newsletters/ACME@example.com will create a folder called Newsletters, then create an ACME
folder under it, and drop the newsletter into the ACME folder.
As an added bonus, you can connect to folders in your email using POP3 by using plus
addressed emails. The example above, when input into your POP email client as your
login name, will return the contents of that folder.
