Apparently emails are a big thing now. How many email accounts do you have? Where are they? What do you use them for? Have they been hacked by Russian spies under the direction of powerful oligarchs?

I currently have five accounts. One is at Yahoo that I only use for their fantasy hockey leagues. That used to be my primary account but I switched over to Gmail at some point because the interface and functionality are better. I actually have two gmail accounts - one is my primary public account with my real name and one is my anonymous Quasi Hatrack account that I use around here and also needed to use to set up an Amazon Seller account since there was some sort of block on the other one. I also have an account at the school where I’m taking classes that only gets used for school stuff. Then there’s an old account that is still active at the school I worked at up until a year and a half ago. I never use it for anything except that my cell phone provider accepted it as proof of employment a few months ago to continue giving me my 18% employer discount off my bill. Sometime next month I’ll be adding a sixth account at the school I’ll be teaching at in the fall once they send me my contract and I sign it.

If I have ever been hacked by oligarchs (powerful or otherwise) they have never done anything with the information.
