  1. A very useful post. Thank you for sharing.

    I do this in a similar way with my gmail accounts. I have a primary account that I use to communicate with family, friends, and a few associates. I have several other accounts that I use to enter online contests and the like, make online purchases, and for use with online financial transactions. This is a great way to control and limit unwanted email and spam. If an account gets out of control. I can just cancel it and make a new one without too much overhead. I currently have six active accounts. In gmail I can link them together to make access easier. Can you do this with hotmail?

    1. Hi Brent,
      Yes, you can add just about any email account into Windows Live or Hotmail from gmail and pop 3 accounts. If you have Yahoo Plus, that can be added too.

      When you add accounts, each has to be verified and during the setup process, you’ll be asked if you want the mail to come into a separate folder or combine your mail together.
