Email addresses

Can one user have two email accounts?  I need one for personal and one for business, but don't want to have to create a seperate user account for myself.  If this is possible, can someone please explain how to accomplish it.  Thank you.

Re: Email addresses

If I'm reading you correctly, I think you are asking if you can use an alias email address that routes mail to your real account-------is that it?  If so, Comcast email has no provision for using aliases.  You can have your primary account, and up to 6 secondary accounts.  But yes, each one is separate, and would have their own user ID and password.

 

Yahoo and Outlook.com both support the use of aliases.  Yahoo lets you have one, and with Outlook.com I think it's three.  Yahoo also lets you use disposable email addresses, which is different yet from an alias, even though it kind of works the same way.  Gmail does not support the use of aliases.

 

Is this what you are thinking?  If not post back.
