How many e-mail addresses do you have? Most likely, you have one for work and one for home. You might have an additional one if you belong to an organization or help answer question for the PTA. But a recent post on Apartment Therapy recommends having four e-mail addresses. These are the four they recommend having:
1. Personal: Use this for anything related to family and friends.
2. Work: Use this for all work-related correspondence.
3. Spam: Use this to sign up for sweepstakes or contests where you know you’re going to make it on to their mailing list. This way you won’t have to worry about unsubscribing later.
4. Security: Create a fourth account for sensitive personal information and storing the data about your other online accounts. Just be sure this is the e-mail that you protect most. Make a secure password and change it frequently.
