Is that addresses or accounts?

I've got 1 account with over 100 aliases.

I have many and use few. Hmm

I guess the correct answer would be I ahve too many to rember and too many to admit out of embarrassment and only actually use very few.

I guess I counted in the other thread but don't remember.

In actual use maybe 5 or ten depending how you set criteria for in actual usage.

I have 5 ISP accounts and use three of them now.

I use gmail and yahoo and have been using others like Hotpop but are trying to end my hotpop. I don' like their policy of deleting emails over 30 days.

I am going to our biggest town on holiday/vacation summer trip 2005 and will be there for as logn I managed to pay. So what fi I have no way of logging in. They delet them two month b4 I ahve a chabce fo reading them. So I will end my relation with them.

So maybe 5 is a realistic figure out of some 30 or 50 signed up usernames or differeing services the gone by now. suredid most likely. emailacc even fails?

At last count I have about 9... Which is good for me. I *used* to have over 50...

At the moment I have Runbox, Fastmail, Hotmail, Yahoo UK, Lycos UK, Kaxy, 2 Netscape and my ISP account. I didn't include 2 pop only accounts in my list though.

In case you don't feel like writing one down.

For example, if someone wants you to give them your eMail address, and afterword you have to do something undesirable (work for example) you want to write down the longest possible address. But if you're signing a form to go to Disney World, you're probably going to write down the shortest address

Also there's the spam thing. I use several aliases through my own service, and most of them redirect to one address with forwards it to another and about 4 forwards later it arrives at my account. This hides my address very well .

I could have x@xxos.us, but then if I don't trust a site I could send it to 48355783@xxos.us and that one redirects to my gmail account which redirects to x@xxos.us, and I'll catch it along the way, so I know what's coming. I have been looking for a service that will forward an eMail sometime like the next day, so if I don't want it in my inbox, I can delete it. I know there's a name for all this ingenious forwarding system, but I can't remember.

I have 2 I use regurally but one of them (safe-mail.net) is basically useless as almost nothing I send out reaches the destination server.... I dunno if they blocked my acct or its the servers rejecting safe-mails packets........

I emailed the support address of safe-mail but they of course ignore ya (If your not paying them $$$$$$ I guess they dont care)
