Now days so many of us use computers for staying touch with friends, works, meeting new people, joining groups, and many other things our email boxes get overloaded. What do you do to keep this from happening when you can't spend too much time on the computer to read them all at one time? I use several email addresses. I have one for my online business web site, one for personal email, and one for my special interests that I do not have to read every day. I think it just makes it easier to prioritize my emails for reading.

four email addresses. one for my website, one for personal email, one for joining groups, and one for some friends who loved to spam my email with forwarded message (I usually don't give them my personal email then but using this special purpose one).

I have two personal email addresses, the main one I use is gmail and the other one i use for msn live messenger is my hotmail account. Most of my personal, mylot and homepage emails come to my gmail account and i actually don't use my hotmail one anymore, only to sign in to chat online to my family and friends via msn.

I have one that I only check once every 30 days just so I don't lose it. It is the one I use when I fill out forms since that usually generates a lot of spam.

I have 3 email addresses. I have a hotmail for friends and msn and mylot, i guess facebox goes in there too. ( i have a habit of calling facebook facebox dont ask why!) And i have a yahoo for all other stuff that i sign up for that i could care less if i ever see it except for varification purposes. And i have the email i signed up for with my ISP, which i RARELY check cause its basically only there to verify my paypal way back when. lol. I think a lot of people do this, and if they dont they are SILLY NOT TO! lol. makes life so much easier. I always block anything in ALL of the email accounts that have the word fw or fwd in them!
