    One company one (and only regularly used)
    One personal, oldest and totally under spam invasion.
    One just because google +
    2 emails used just because registering of primary for some reasion failed.

    One company email,
    Two that are my first initial and last name (one yahoo one google). The yahoo one is the one I usually give out for anything formal, but I maintain my google one too.
    One old one that I made was I was 13 but is still vague enough to keep using.

    I keep meaning to take advantage of yahoo's anonymous email feature, but I haven't yet.

    Four-
    One company - which can only be accessed at work (or via vpn)
    One for friends - the oldest address
    One for commercial stuff - started it to minimize commercial mail in my friends-email address
    One for Spam - a leftover from my studying days - it probably got hacked once (unknown login from an Russian IP)

    Not enough options in the poll. I have a work email address, a personal email address and a few legacy personal email addresses that I've accumulated over the years. None of the "a bunch" options match this at all. In fact I'd guess my situation is probably more common than any of the options in the poll.

    Use on a regular basis? Two. One for personal email, the other the sacrificial lamb for shopping, forums, and newsletters and such. I have two other old Hotmail accounts from the Clinton/Bush years that I log in to every two weeks just in case I need them, a leftover AOL account from my AIM years that receives the same treatment, plus a 'serious' email address that I can use for resumes. Essentially, I started on Hotmail, acquired a Yahoo address for Yahoo messenger, decided to use the same nickname for Hotmail, got on AIM, and when 2005 rolled around I started using Gmail.

    Oh, and technically I have an account with my ISP. :lol: I've never logged into it, though.

    Awful, awful poll.

    I have 4. One for crap, one for standard use, one for professional use, and my student email.

    For anyone still thinking the poll was intended as a serious survey on this critical issue...it wasn't.

    The poll options are pretty terrible, so I'm not voting.

    I have one work e-mail that I check regularly (I also have a work one that I check once a month or so, but almost no one sends anything to it). I also have one personal e-mail account that I use regularly, which I currently have two e-mail addresses associated with.

    Like pretty much everyone else, I have several other rarely/never used ones... the most notable ones being a student one that forwards to my main account, and a GMail account that was my primary for the better part of a decade.

    I didn't think it was, but I felt it necessary to explicitly criticise it anyway.

    I can accept that.

    For the record, did any of the available answers give you even the slightest chuckle?

    Man. Oh for ten. That's a new low, and yet I persevere.

    I can't quite keep track, but they are perfect for making this kind of post.
