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.

As you move forward and use the internet more and more, you also register and sign up for all types of services and web sites. By doing this you open yourself to email overload as you get emails from every one of these companies you registered with.
Would it not be great if you could arrange to have these emails plugged into a folder and not fill your inbox. Well all email services like Hotmail, Live, Google, Yahoo mail all have filters that you can create to move these emails to folders – but you have to do the work!
There is new SERVICE that will quickly do that organization for you. You create your folders and quickly create the relationship between email and folder on the WEB. Currently the service works with Gmail and Yahoo – I have asked when and if other services will be added. You get a summary email indicating which emails have been moved, it will also make suggestions on new emails you receive.
I am sure like everyone I know, they have management issue around e-mails. We all get too many e-mails and trying to find the time to review, reply and manage them can sometimes be impossible. We all spend too much time, and for many our personal time trying to keep it somewhat under control. Just a few years ago it was just work e-mail, today it’s both work and our own personal email accounts!
One of the things I have done for my personal email account is setup a 2nd email address that I only use for REGISTRATIONS, offerings etc. Anything that you might receive regular emails. This makes my primary email account just for family and friends – the emails I want to review. The other account is reviewed when I have time.
