How many email accounts do you have? many email addresses do you have? If you have multiples, what/who do you use the various accounts for?

I have seven or eight (I think ) addresses: and couple on aol, one gmail, one hotmail, one sbs, and a couple of ones tied to websites I have (one that has me as "Steve", which I'm I don't use it).

Obviously, some of those I don't use (since I can't even remember them), but five of them are currently active. One of my aol accounts I use for my eBay account, the other I use for my main email account for friends and the like.

I set up the hotmail account to correspond with one person when my aol emails were not getting to him. Since he's a business and well as personal contact, it was important for my emails to get through. He has a hotmail account, so I set up one as well and use that account to correspond with him only. Because I don't use that address for anything or anyone else, I get no spam.

The sbs account and one other account I use mostly for email lists. I tend to get a lot of spam on those accounts. I think I may drop these accounts and switch the email list subscriptions to my gmail account. Currently I'm not doing anything with that account, so maybe that would cut down on the spam a bit.

Well, basically I have three active e-mail accounts. Two of those three have at least one redirect attached to them, so that gives me about 6 e-mail addresses at which people can e-mail me and I'll get the e-mail right away.

I probably have one or two dead ones out there. Plus my student account from college which may or may not still be active.

i have one i use, one for school that i have forwarded to the one i use. i've got two gmail accounts...the second is because i was trying to send an invite to someone and screwed up and it ended up getting bounced back to me.

aol, and another yahoo. i've had a couple hotmail accounts that have expired because i've forgotten about them.

two: my work/school (it's my student account, but configured through the staff/faculty servers and client for my job), and a Gmail account I never use.

3, and I only use two regularly (my one and my work email). The other is a gmail that I honestly haven't used once since setting it up.
