Gmail way of tracking who sent the e-mail

Cali Lewis sent me this information and I thought it was important to share.
Take a look at this blog entry: Google Operating System: Delete All Spam In Gmail. The most important feature is not how to delete the Spam, but instead how to add "+something" to your e-mail account when you give it out to someone else. This allows you to track who has sold your e-mail address to Spammers.
For instance, when you sign up to amazon use If Amazon sells this address you will know where it's coming from.
I'm now renaming all my accounts like that so I can see who's the company selling my info away.
