How many email address's do you have?

I intend running a feature on this at work. Do you have more than one? Do you use them on a regular basis? Are they POP enabled? What makes you want to have more than one?

I have four:

My 'regular' blueyonder account, which contains my real name.

A second blueyonder account which does not contain my real name that I use to register on forums such as this. This enables me to respond to yellow envelope messages without revealing my identity.

A Hotmail account that I use to collect spam and also some newsletters. The main reason for having this is to have a web-based mail if Outlook, Outlook Express, or more likely the blueyonder mail servers, decide to play up.

A Gmail account - I got this purely out of curiosity and now its only use is for sending invites to others (only on request, I hasten to add).

I also have a business e-mail address and an e-mail account with a major customer, for when I work from their offices.

I only have one, POP enabled, which is used on a daily basis.

I have nine, no I'm not being greedy, three are associated with groups I belong to MSN and Yahoo, two are Lycos which I've had since I was on Freeserve many years ago, does anyone remember them? One I haven't a clue why I've got that one because I don't use it, might come in useful one day, two with my ISP and one on my web site, they are all either POP or IMAP enabled.

I have one - but it could effectively be multiple addresses:

It's along the lines of [email protected]

The beauty of it is that I (or people sending e-mails to me) can replace 'myname' with literally anything (within the bounds of decency!!) and e-mails would still reach me.

Oh, I also have a Gmail account out of curiosity, but never use it.

I have 3 e-mail addresses and I use my AOL e-mail address the most with my other 2 I only occasionally use them.

I think my other 2 e-mail addresses are POP enabled as I *think* AOL uses the IMAP standard?

Three for personal use (one for important stuff on my own domain, another for not-so-important stuff and a third for potential junk-mail) plus four for my business on a seperate domain.

I have four

one hotmail - used to access MSN Messenger which the family use to maintain contact and transfer large files
Three with ISP
one for personal use,one for forums such as this and one for online purchases etc

I have one that I use for personal communications

I have a work email addy

I have one that I use for registering at places and for forum replies.

I have one that I use for people to send me bad files and suspect stuff... but that is a redirect address.

I have about various forum email addresses from the forums that I administrate.

How do I manage these emails?

I find mailwasher very handy.... I review them as they come in and delete the spam if there is any. When I download them I have email rules to direct them to different folders in outlook and then I go through them and deal with them as needs be.

Apart from the work emails... they stay at work!!

Four here; all different & none are Hotmail...

Two are POP, two are log-in.
