What free mail service supports “plus addresses”? Like barry.carter+foo@service.com [mailto:barry.carter+foo@service.com] would reach me, where foo could be anything? I know gmail doesn’t (though they do support random dot placement email).

(Tyler): Gmail does, actually. I have it used on my account to filter certain mailing lists. If I understand correctly, gmail will send all the following emails to the same account:

emailname@gmail.com

e.mail.name@gmail.com

e.mailname+junk@gmail.com

email.name+school@googlemail.com (due to gmail.com trademark issues in some countries.)
