Dealing with Multiple E-Mail Accounts
want to check which account a message will be sent through, look at the
From field at the top of the e-mail message. If you would like to change the
sending account, just click the From button and select the new account from
the drop-down list.
If you use only the e-mail address provided by your ISP, you’ll get along just
fine. But if you want to set up a separate e-mail address for each member of
your family, or keep your business e-mail separate from your personal
messages, you can open an account with any number of mailbox providers.
Microsoft’s Hotmail/Outlook.com service is a good place to go for free e-mail
accounts. Hotmail still exists, though Microsoft is upgrading the service and
calling it Outlook.com. If you want to open an e-mail account today, it will
have an Outlook.com address. If you already have a Hotmail or Live.Com
address, you can keep using it, but you’ll be asked to upgrade to the new
Outlook.com service. Eventually, all Hotmail and Live.com addresses will
be converted to Outlook.com. For more information on Outlook.com, see
Mail.com ( www.mail.com ) is another popular provider of electronic mailboxes.
You can sign up for an address through Mail.com for free and check your
e-mail messages through your Web browser. If you want to take advantage
of Outlook’s sophisticated mail-management features with your Mail.com
account, you can pay extra per year for a POP3 account. (I’ve been using
Mail.com for about ten years, and I think the company does a good job.)
