I work with a lot of people that know very little about their computers. Many of them have trouble adding names to a contact list. But, there are some things new computer users are never told. One that stand by is having more than 1 email account. I currently have about 8. The reasons to have more than 1 is pretty simple.
- When asked for an email address when signing up for contests or purchasing something online you never really know where that address is going to go. Giving a blanket address for such things can cut spam from an email account that has important information... and cut down on possible viruses.
- If you are unsure about your ISP (Internet service provider) and may move at some point but don't want to keep telling people that you have a new email address.
- When you wish to separate business, personal and recreational email.
I could probably keep listing other reasons but I'd like to know, how many email accounts do you have?
