WHY – I am sure many of you ask that question. Well I can see this being very useful, since I am maintaining a few BLOGS and am trying to review certain applications and WEB apps – I find myself signing up for many services and getting tons of emails because of it.
davAPPTESTING@hotmail.com – what a great email address for all those registration I am doing. They arrive you put them in a folder and deal with them, they don’t mess up my primary inbox and I can turn off that alias at any time. (Not a real email address, might be)
I can see myself doing this for any WEB sights that I am registering for moving forward, I can see myself changing many others to the new alias, much easier than having two or three different email addresses.
Starting today, you can create and manage multiple email aliases from a single Hotmail account. Together with features that we introduced in November that let you use Hotmail with any existing email address, the new aliasing feature makes it easy to use a different email address and still get all the benefits of Hotmail without having to change your primary email address and online identity.
The email address a person uses is a big part of their online identity. The average person maintains three different email addresses in order to organize different types of email, maintain different personas, or keep junk mail away from a primary email address. So there are many good reasons that people want multiple email addresses, but maintaining multiple accounts, with different user names and passwords that require you to check multiple inboxes, is inefficient. With today’s update, Hotmail helps you save time by making it easier to manage your current and future email addresses in one place.
