how many email accounts do you have?

Post by OppositeKeith »

i usually see around 2 or 3 email when i talk to people about them. mostly whether to separate work from casual web surfing or just have it for school and college. i technically have 5 in general now. 4 of which are gmail and 1 is for tutanota. 2 gmail accounts for general stuff and looking for jobs, 1 for college, and one specifically for making a SCP foundation account since apperently they dont take emails with numbers on them. the tutanota one is also for casual stuff as well but i use it mostly on discord, newgrounds, and other forum sites. how many emails do you and whats the purpose of them?

old internet handle @gmail --> everything personal/casual
firstname.lastname @gmail --> job applications and the like
firstname.lastname @work --> basically automated error reports lol.

i also set up a mailserver at home to accept everything @myolddomain.com into the same inbox so that i could just make up addresses on the fly. Really stupid idea, the amount of spam was.. nerve wracking. Gmail apparently does a lot for me in that department, filtering shit... so turned it off, removed the config and all. Turns out my old facebook and a few tumblr accounts used such addresses. So now i cant get into any of those accounts 🤷‍♀️

I've been meaning to move away from gmail bc. privacy issues but... i don't really see what i could use instead that i would trust to remain for many years to come, respect privacy, not be hosted in a strange place, and so on. Any ideas? I would be willing to pay at least a little.

I have three email addresses:

-One that I used in the old days that I no longer use.
-A main email address that I use for most stuff.
-A "comfy" email address that I use for things like the Yesterweb.

i have about 6 as well.
the first one i had, (deadname).(lastname) @gmail, was set up for me by my mom when i was wee and gmail was new, and my current main one (name).(lastname) @gmail i made as soon as i settled on a name so people could stop using the one with my deadname on it lol. i use this one for family, job applications, irl stuff like that

i have a handful with really stupid names that i made as a kid because i was on an avatar site that let you earn premium currency by.. giving your email address to sponsored spam-senders essentially lol. i use them as backups or if i want to make alt accounts on some sites. one of those has been promoted to my main "signing up for websites" email so notification spam from said websites stays in one place :p

and then i have (oldhandle) @gmail that i use for commissions and the like, though it's based on a handle i haven't actually used in nearly a decade, because trashguts @gmail is taken and it's the most least unprofessional one i have that doesn't give my full name away to any stranger on my website lol

Too many. Especially since I have a bunch of Gaia Online "mule" accounts and they all have to have their own fricking email accounts even though one person is allowed to have multiple accounts.

Re: how many email accounts do you have?

two tricks if you just wanna sign up for something a bunch of times but dont care about having your inbox cluttered:

dot's in email addresses are fake, as in they don't matter. all my tumblrs are variants of like bogusaddress@gmail.com, bogus.address@gmail.com, bo.gus.add.ress@gmail.com, b.ogusaddress@gmail.com etc etc etc. when you register for a site they will differentiate between dottings but the mailservers themselves wont.

there's also something called subaddressing which ive had mixed luck with, where you can add an arbitrary second part with a plus, such as bogusaddress+yesterforum@gmail.com for here, and then bogusaddress+neopets1@gmail.com and bogusaddress+neopets2@gmail.com for registering there. here too the principle is that when registering, the website will differentiate between the addresses (since they look different), but the mailserver wont.

the second one isnt as widely supported but apparently most major places do. also note you should probably not use either of these on places where multiple accounts are a no-no, since it's super visible what youre up to, if anyone is actually looking.

three main ones (a public-facing one, a personal one and a "serious" one) and then like a dozen others that are rarely used

I'm so mad at myself for making a political donation with my serious e-mail instead of a throwaway account, now I get all this politics spam :angry:

gmail lifehacks:
1

Code: Select all

youraddress@googlemail.com
will work the same as @gmail.com

2
you can use + to add characters on the end of your gmail name, and it still works!

Code: Select all

youraddress+bunchofnumbers@gmail.com
I don't know if these work with all email provides (the googlemail one wouldn't, but the +bunchofnumbers one might)

how many gmails do i have? business and pleasure. that's it. I use the two lifehacks in case i need more pleasure gmails.

i should move away from gmail too, lol

I have 4 email accounts currently two Gmail and two protonmails.

I used to have Hotmail and Yahoo accounts in the 2000's when I was a teen but I deleted them as soon as there were security breaches reported on those accounts.

Additionally I used to have two college accounts one for Community college and another for the University I attended until I graduated in both places. Also I had a company issued account for my former workplace before I was removed from that one.

two gmail accounts for signing up to stuff I don't care about.
three, possibly four work accounts.
a marginalia.nu-account that I don't post publicly, as well as an alias that I post publicly (i.e. kontakt@marginalia.nu).

That's like... anywhere between 6-8 accounts.

in the like 16 years ive been on the internet, i've probably managed to make somewhere in the ballpark of three to four dozen email accounts on like 6 different services including gmail, aol, yahoo, and a few others. of course, i only actively use a handful of those (maybe 5?) today, but one way or another i've managed to accrue a stupidly massive "collection" of emails, most of which i made when i was a kid. don't ask me why i had a tendency to make so many, i wish i knew the answer LMAO.

I run my own mailserver, so practically infinite emails.

In practice I have about six accounts in my client, three personal, one for receiving email off my site's contact, one for all my house stuff, and work one

One account but many aliases.
I make a randomized alias for every service we register on. That way we can easily filter them and if one lands on a spam list we can just delete that alias and it'll reject any mail on that one.

As for the gmail accounts, one's for newsletters I actually want to see, one is for newsletters I don't care about and account creation, and one is for personal stuff like banking and job applications.

I think I have about 11 in total still running - all gmail except for the icloud and uni ones - but only 6 or 7 of them get really used anymore. Most of the retired ones were just cringy (like my "drowninginpain666" one from when i was 12 lol) or in two cases, were just filled with scholarship / university ads which made them impossible to use.

Mainly, I use my [deadname.middlename.10]@gmail my parents made for me when I got my first tablet for logging into stuff with my google account,
[WoW character username]@icloud for services that still use it (though I don't login to new stuff with it because it gets a lot of spam atp, being so old now)
[firstname inital]@gmail when I have to give a professional email
[highschool firstname.lastname]@gmail for work (I had to make a professional email in hs but changed my name since then)
and then I have one for all my user accounts / shops and one for signing up to more spammy sites or for logging into one piracy forum (since I don't check it ever). Then there's my uni email, of course. Basically lots of compartmentalization that keep them around, lol

3 - I wanted to start a new web identity
4 - I got this email yeearrss ago to sign up to Scratch.mit.edu and other stuff around that time.

I'm in a system where most of us have taken to having multiple accounts so... there's probably 30 or so but I haven't counted, not counting dead ones that have been inactive for more than three years. We currently have three though that are actively shared which is the personal one which uses our name, a system one which uses the closest thing we have to an online system name, and one which is meant to be just for system members who don't have an Email set up yet or don't want one.

It's funny to talk to people about it though. I was talking with a customer at work and recommended Thunderbird for managing multiple Emails and she said it sounded good for her three Emails, and I mentioned having like 30 and it still functioning pretty well for. I really wonder what people think is going on when we talk about having so many Emails.

I have one master inbox, and then a plethora of addresses that all forward solely there.

Makes privacy a lot easier, from my experience, when you can create individual addresses for signing up to sites and immediately cancel them when they're shared or compromised. :lol:

About 4, one for online sleuthing that i've had since I was a kid, two for both school and personal/irl things, and one when I'm concerned about remaining anonymous or just having a sort of throwaway email for testing stuff out.

I have another email account that I've had since I was a kid that's still up, but I rarely use it nowadays except to check out stuff that's still connected to it. I also had one from when I was an even younger kid on aol, when they still let parents own email accounts for their kids. I only used that one to sign up for Kung Fu Panda online lol.

So in actuality, I probably have around 10 emails including the ones above and ones that I made as extra throwaways and have since lost access to.

I have quite a few emails to say the least.

Public Email (general stuff)
Personal Email (full name of course so i absolutely wouldnt give it)
Flipnote Backups Gmail (flipnote archiving, havent used it much in a while tho)
Yahoo Email (for the memes)
Another Gmail (alt as well)
Yandex Email (for the memes)

I also had an email from 2019 that I have since lost after my account got hacked (which was my previous personal email). I think I had one other one with the password/email somewhere so in total like 8 emails. I might get rid of a few eventually but idk, I need to make sure each and every account I have on every website uses just the emails i want to use if I do so.

I might get a domain and try to setup an email server. If I can do that, then I'd have my own custom email address so I'd definitely have more emails by then.
