My friend said that we can send mails to a gmail ID omitting the '.'. Still it goes to the same person.
He said he verified this with his account. When he tried to send using the second email id the mail got landed in his inbox. is it a real feature of gmail or there is some error in this.
For e.g the real email id is firstname.lastname@example.org. Instead of using email@example.com in the To field he used firstname.lastname@example.org
