Too Many Email Addresses


How many email addresses does one person require? I did a quick inventory (1st of the year - what else do you do, but count things) and discovered I have many toooo many email addresses. A sampling:

r@mchsi.com

r@rallenhill.com

r@capturehits.com

r@waterlootrinity.com

r@hotmail.com

r@gmail.com

r@yahoo.com

r@forbin.net

r@veteransbusinessstrainingcenter.com

Gone are:

r@aol.com

r@mac.com


Now, for those who know me, y'all will know what goes in the place of the "r" - for the spammers and scammers who crawl the internet - well - go someplace else.

I also cover webmaster email accounts for a couple of web sites - so I'm so plugged in it hurts!!!

Each (ok, most) email addresses were created for a genuine need (perceived) at the time - others like the gmail account was created 'cause I wanted one and couldn't have one until I was "invited". Becoming invited became my mission for awhile - and now I have a gmail account.

My 1st 2007 New Years Resolution - clean up my email...in the mean time, if you can't find me by email, you're not really trying. .

I had a few major emails, which I keep active, but mostly it comes down to:

uiowa.edu = all work-related e-mail
gmail.com = all family/daily life e-mail
yahoo.com = spam e-mail

I had a hotmail and an altavista, but it's been so long since I've checked those, I'm sure they've been deleted.
