Not knowing that the person does not use the period dividing the name in the gmail account.
Sure enough my messages arrived at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Obviously gmail detects such things: "try firstnamelastname IF firstname.lastname = 0" type query, pretty neat I say.
Also the + form of addressing works which is fab. You can even forward or automatically delete `+ style' addresses meaning that you can have an infinite number of addresses and turn them off when they collect too much spam.
eg email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org will both be delivered to fred101's inbox. neat!
Looked like they got around to doing it! You'd think they'd tell people about it though.
