OK, I get it now. That's actually pretty convenient for a lot of things.

Thanks for the link! I didn't know about the gmail feature mentioned in the article...

"Aliases joins an existing multiple e-mail address feature offered in both Hotmail and Google's Gmail that uses a plus symbol after a user name, but before the @ symbol. Users would then add any word after the plus symbol to create an identifiable address (e.g. Josh+newstip@Hotmail.com). This lets messages get filtered into folders, while also providing a way to see if that retailer you bought something from sold your address to a third party."

As of February 3, 2011 hotmail supports aliases that can be used as throw-away email accounts. 5 aliases available with a view to becoming 15 in the near future. Ref. http://news.cnet.com/8301-10805_3-20030574-75.html
