Multiple Personalities

Multiple Personalities — Readers sent in many additional options for obtaining multiple email addresses without buying a separate dial-up account from an ISP.

John Belamaric <[email protected]> notes: "EarthLink Network provides additional email addresses for $4.95 per month."

Albert Smith <[email protected]> chimes in, "IBM.net allows up to five independent email addresses under one account. They are worldwide and seem great so far (I just set my mom up with them)."

John Roberts <[email protected]> comments, "If you have an account with Best Internet (an ISP in the Bay Area), you can get extra POP mail boxes at $5 per month (the price goes down as the quantity goes up)."

Steve Cavanaugh <[email protected]> suggests: "Delphi allows you to get a POP account for just $34.97 per year or $6.95 a month; it also gets you 10 MB of Web storage space and a few other services."

Karl-Johan Noren <[email protected]> writes, "In the Swedish market almost every larger ISP provides up to five separate email accounts with every Internet account. All this happened during the last year. Now, the Swedish market can’t be compared with the American (lots smaller, and dominated by four or five large ISPs with a few local ones), but it shows a possible trend."

John Lucas-Williams <[email protected]> notes, "My ISP, Demon Internet Ltd. of London, has always provided dial-up Internet access that puts your machine on the Internet with its own static IP address. I can have an unlimited number of users online with their own email addresses. Using Eudora it is easy to have multiple mailboxes, and I have several, with a couple of friends having access as well. There is even an email address for my pet Border Terrier named Gyp <[email protected]> who "subscribes" to the Border Terrier List."
