Is there any way to search all of the "plus" addresses you have set up for your gmail account?
For example – you set up many "plus" addresses but you don't remember all of them
So you want to just search for anything sent to yourname+[anyandallplusaddresses][put at-character here]gmail.com.
I've tried searching to: yourname+ but that doesn't seem to work...
Does anyone have any ideas?

Sorry, i wasn't very clear :)
What i meant was i want to search for all "plus addresses", not just ones that I remember.

I have given out a lot of different plus addresses but I don't remember what they are – so is there any way to just search for all?

Thanks for the help, but that search doesn't work either....
I've tried a few other variations ans still no dice
to:yourname+*
to:*+*
to:+
to:+*[put at-character here]gmail.com
yourname'+'*[put at-character here]gmail.com

Thanks

Suresh – No Dice again – it shows all of my mails as the other searches do...

I think this might work out.
"yourname"~[put at-character here]gmail.com or "yourname"~*[put at-character here]gmail.com

for example "james"~[put at-character here]gmail.com link:

google.com/search?hl=en&q= ...

again... nope :(
Maybe there is a way to see a list of who emails are sent to?

If your email address is coward[put at-character here]gmail.com, search for coward in your contacts list. You'll find all the coward+? addresses assuming you replied at least once to a message received from these addresses.

Thank you, but it turns out I have not replied to any....
i guess the real reason i want to is so that i can see what sites start to send me spam and such (for a lot of websites i sign up as username+websitename[put at-character here]gmail.com)
Well, thanks for all the help, and ig anyone does find a way that would be quite useful
