Too many email accounts for you to handle

I have recently noticed that I open up a new email account for every new venture I under take. My initially thoughts were to keep each venture separate by all means, so that it doesn’t affect each other what so ever. My thoughts basically came from the old saying “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket”, and following that seemed like a great idea at the time. Thats until I started losing track of where my emails were, the password as well as the login name.

Funniest part now is that I want to start my own email hosting server / website. Much like Gmail, except a completely different name. No competitive advantage, probably less web space but 100% more reliable. In doing that, I can host all my email accounts on one server, on domain as well as be the owner of the email service.

Though I’d rather not stress over the technicalities behind an email host, it does thrill me to think that I can give my friends and family free email accounts which 100% guarantees that I can retrieve their username and password for them incase they forget, which is often when it comes to my parents.  Not sure if that is a good thing though, having access too all their emails at will. Probably a big privacy issue, either way, it sounds like an interesting venture I may get in, in the near future. I’d call it fmail.com or something =)

    I’m in the same boat as you of late, 21 websites and close to a hundred email accounts to maintain! XD

    I’ve been out of the blogging scene for a bit now, just getting back in – launched my new company, Red Block!… and blog. 😀 – . I’m in touch with my host provider all the time, makes expanding and custom apps so much easier to get running than stiff commercial hosts. Pity it’s located in the US. 🙁

    Which email client are you using? Do you use any profile user/password management software?

    Same here. Each time I start another account the 1st thing I do is email to my main one the login info. I should clarify – that’s what I do now…
