Hi,

 

I'm reorganizing all my mail accounts and was just wondering how many aliases people use and what for?

I was thinking of having my main one for personal mail and everything else official, use one to log into sites like Neowin, TheVerge,....

Maybe one for subscriptions,...

 

What do you guys think

 

Cheers

no.

 

I do use an add-on in FF called MaskMe that can generate email addresses I can use anywhere and dispose of at any time.

To be honest, the NSA probably knows more of my email aliases than I do. Over the years I've forgotten so many of the accounts I've set up.

I have my main one that I use for everything, then an alias that I use with forum software to /mask/ my primary address, then it all goes into it's own folder.

I've set up my main one that I use for anything 'official' and whatever I don't use in real life I send to an alias so far.

Seems to work just fine that way.
