Do you know that the (dot) in your Gmail does not affect your email address in anyway?
A simple example will be email@example.com. Even if you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, we will still receive the email. That is to say, sending an email to email@example.com will reach us as well.
This, of course, only works for Gmail only. If you try it on other email providers, your message will get bounced back.
It has been like this for many years and many of us are still unaware of it.
So for those whose Gmail account includes the (dot), you can save yourself the trouble of pronouncing the “dot” in your email address.
But for other email providers, do remember to convey the “dot” across, else the message will get bounced back.
