    Sometimes a person can have many different email addresses assigned to them. For instance, a person may have one at work, one at school, one for their important email at home, another for subscriptions/ promotions as those are apt to receive more spam. Sometimes a person tries a new email service provider but continue using older accounts. Take a quick inventory of yourself and see how many emails addresses you use.

    Gmail is my main one, but I also use depending on the circumstances Hotmail, GMX, and Tiscali.

    Have to use a couple of e mail addresses when necessary so my 'main' address doesn't get spammed.

    2, outlook and yandex, different providers, so I would not loose both in case of an emergency and also for recovery purposes, you never know, when may need it.

    Four for me. I have a fastmail email address I've used for years. Also, a Gmail I use for my Android devices, the only time I actually use it is when I'm emailing an apk file to my phone. At work I have two email addresses.

    I do have a couple of other email accounts with fastmail and Hotmail, but I rarely use them.

    A few primary ones and as for the rest, I don't bother to count. I find disposable email services quite handy.

    I have at least six. My paid for Yahoo! is my principle mail for work & contacts like that (I also have a free Yahoo! Mail account), AOL & Zoho are the two I use as back up & for everything else. That leaves me with GMX as my back up, back up. I even use Outlook & Gmail on the odd occasion.

    Active ones 2.

    But also at least 2 dozen disposable ones.

    (love the Yahoo disposable Addresses function, wish Gmail would start doing this !)
