    How many email adresses do you have?

    It has come to my attention lately that over the years I have collected quite some email adresses. So I wondered how many does the nerd of today has on average?

    For me it's 5:
    - an old hotmail: was already hacked once, I only use it for spam-things like facebook
    - gmail: my normal email adress
    - [email protected]: my brother once made them for the whole family, though I almost never use it
    - university 1: email each student gets
    - university 2: email each worker gets

    I used to have 5,

    But now i have a -

    Gaming email,
    My apprenticeship/ work/ college email,
    Personal/ social media email,
    Online purchasing email.

    All with passwords that are changed every 3 months (the passwords have a mix of capitals and numbers) Overall, im quite careful.

    I'd rather have some of my eggs in different nests...

    If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.

    1 Old hotmail one. Was forced to make one at elementary school (like 4th grade). I used that from 1998 to 2008.
    2 One current hotmail, only using for skype/msn IM's
    3 Gmail - Made since beta.. my "official" one as it has my name instead of nick
    4 One secret one - mostly used to discuss with people from random sites and sometimes registering with that so people cant backtrace it to facebook or anything like that

    So eh

    Well, I don’t see why women are being blamed if man is stupid enough to really think they have red and gold eyelids.

    I'm sorry what?

    Cybering? Is that my dirty mind, or?

    I have one email reserved for a few important channels. Such as between myself and work. My other email is for all the rest and is cursed with spam.

    Personally I use one and that is just gmail.

    What I do like a few people is add various +<word> to my gmail when signing up for stuff and then setup filters ([email protected] as primary and then use [email protected] when setting up accounts).

    I think a better question is.

    How many emails do you have on your MSN account?

    Last time I checked, I think I had around 12000.

    I don't think this matters nearly as much as you think it does.

    Let´s see:
    1x hotmail account I don't use anymore. It was my very first and the name isn't really formal.
    1x hotmail account that is my main account.
    1x university account that I use for school stuff.
    1x gmail account that I made for I don't know what.
    1x hotmail account for WoW
    1x hotmail account that I don't know for what I use it.

    That means 6 email accounts afaik.

    I have 6 myself.
    Four are for random stuff like game and website registrations. The others are for personal use and paypal/amazon in such.
