How many email addresses do you have and what purposes do they serve?

I've got five.

1) My main Gmail address that is used for pretty much everything. Gmail does everything right.
2) iCloud email, which I never really use. It's just there because I use Apple stuff.
3) Outlook. Made this one as part of my Microsoft login and Office subscription. It's my recovery email for Gmail and iCloud. Never use it otherwise.

4) Work. Only use this one for work communications.
5) School. Only use this one for school communications.

Gmail.com, , for personal friends and family
Yahoo.com, for other trusted communications
Hotmail.com, for suspect listings or spam risks.
Mail.ru, rarely used, for stealth communications
Yahoo.no, rarely used for other specialized purposes.

Each one has its own bookmark already logged in, and with a different browser for yahoo.no, so I never need to log out and back in again to get from one to another. It takes about 15 seconds to check my inbox in all of the first three.

I have 3 hotmail accounts that are linked to my Outlook. Official Hotmail account that reands MyFirstnameMylastName@Hotmail.com.
One for junk mail and dating (had this account for so long that it is associated with my actual street address (need a stealthier one, wanted to fix it this week).

One more like that, (MyLastnameFirstInitial@hotmail.com).

I have a Gmail Account that also uses my name, it's for my android... never remember password to it.

I am also a software developer. This week I opened like 2 new accounts for work (testing and troubleshooting stuff) SSL expired on one of the servers (that was the result of the testing

Also Comcast gave me an account with my Internet, i never use that account.

since Emails log sender's IP, opening Mail.ru for stealth ? who are you kidding ? I can get your GPS coordinates in like 2 minutes For Stealth you have to VPN to a .Ru server and then open a mail.RU account, never log in into that account using your own IP...

Two: Yahoo for political junkmail, Gmail for notifications from social media.
I don't count the one from my ISP since I've never used/checked it.

One is a .edu I use for that purpose only.
The other is a Gmail which I use for all other purposes.
There might be an ISP email from Verizon but no one ever uses it if we do have one.
