I have 2 iClouds, 1 Hotmail, 1 Gmail and 1 Yahoo for a total of 5. Hotmail is all spam all day and everyday. Evil Gmail is online stuff. Evil Yahoo is I don’t know yet. Innocent iCloud is primary and secondary. Smile

So I actually just use 3. Are you similar or are you different?

essentially an unlimited number of email addresses. i run mail on a bunch of my own domains, and and i use a separate address for each account/service. i often use a unique address for each transaction.

not really, and that's kind of the point. when spam arrives at some address, that address doesn't accept messages anymore. it bounces everything. this isn't a problem because that address was only used for one specific thing.

I don’t have an email address.

I do similar to SYZYGY.

Multiple domains, unlimited emails at those domains.
All emails and domains monitored on one screen in K9.

Reverses the model. I allocate one to anyone I correspond with.

Do you guys run an email server yourself or do you pay a company to do it?

I didn’t count my work…
I’m the email admin there (among about 20-30 other hats), as such for all our domains I have to get email addressed to webmaster@domain.com, administrator@domain.com, postmaster@domain.com (and in some cases .org) not to mention my actual address…

Most email providers accepts any string after ‘+’ sign. So one can have unlimited address like username+something@whatever.com.

Other solution is to use mail forwarder (like forwardemail.net) + buy own domain. All emails will be forwarded to one’s specified email address.

I have two.

Gmail and Hotmail.

I primarily use Gmail, and I like it a lot.

Hotmail doesn't work with my slow internet very well, and I don't like it, but I've had my Hotmail address for decades.

I used to have an Excite and a Yahoo email address, but I quit using them many years ago.

Five.

1. work.
2. play.
3. fake.
4. friends/relatives.
5. confidential.

work: “have to have” although no one expects anything. there are better ways.
play is for BLF and others.
fake is for one-time sign-ups.
f/r keeps the spam contained.
confidential is just that.
