Hotmail Making It Simple and Easy to Create “Junker Email” Aliases

Posted Feb 05 2011 3:36pm

By now everyone who is on the web is more than likely using a Junker email for one purpose or another.  This is cool with being able to add an “alias” so you can image actually pre-sort an separate emails sent to the alias address.  As I read here you can have up to 5 aliases and when complete an individual will be able to have as many as 15. It’s pretty simple to add on and took me a couple of minutes to do. 

You can delete the alias too at any time, so when presented the screen, choose create a new email live address and you can add it on. One other item to think about too is to at least create a new folder and set up a sorting rule for all those emails containing that address to go to a separate folder.  You don’t have to do this but it will keep all such emails from entering into your main email box and makes it simpler to find the “alias mail”.  Also when providing an email address on the web, again you have everything in one place as we may not always want to use our good email address that we use for work and personal correspondence with web applications such as social networks.  BD 

Today, Hotmail is getting a new feature aimed at "e-mail enthusiasts," which lets anyone create multiple e-mail accounts that can be read, replied to, and managed from their everyday e-mail inbox. These additional e-mail addresses can be had in the same manner as signing up for new accounts, but they require no extra log-ins or upkeep.

The solution Microsoft's Hotmail team came up with was to make use of some of its existing technologies like account sign-up, message filtering, and multiple e-mail address integration to give users these aliases within the same account. Each user can create up to five aliases, any of which can be deleted and replaced with another at any time. Over time, Microsoft will increase that limit to 15 aliases per account, making it so that the true heavy users won't need to juggle between two or more Hotmail accounts.
