How much webmail accounts do you have ?

I always thought I was a weirdo with my +10 accounts while most of my friends had maximum 5. But I start to think I'm not the only weirdo out there on the worldwide web. This may be an interesting poll to see how much the average forum member has

I have :

- 2 Hotmail.com
- 1 Skynet.be
- 1 AdValvas.be
- 1 GMail.com
- 1 Yahoo.no
- 1 Yahoo.dk
- 2 zzn.com
- and thanks to Susan now 1 aventuremail.com
- I had a fan.marilyn-manson.nl one, but the service seems down

So this means : 10 mailboxes. I used to have more, but some services proved to be unreliable and went off-line. But I'm sure I'll have more than 10 mailboxes again soon, as I plan to register a new domainname and link the alias to a mailbox where I can send mails with the alias as address.

Just start a new thread.

You might also want to clarify exactly what you mean by "webmail". Do you mean free, webmail-only services only? Or would POP/IMAP services that also offer webmail as an option also count? What about paid services?

I mean: e-mails that you can check from any computer, paid or unpaid. Outlook addresses don't count

Forget the poll. I think we prefer to post out the names instead of a poll.

I am going to sign-up for a Bluebottle account as well, right now for the next few hours, the servers are down due to upgrades, so I cannot currently sign-up but I will tomorrow, so that makes my total 45 valid, 26 I am not sure about (for a possible total of 71)....

Susan.

Do you order 'email account' when you dine out garnished with slivers of delicate seasoned spam ?


I currently have 1 Hotmail
1 Yahoo.co.uk
1 My way.com
1 Gmail
1 zzn.com
1 M2W
