  • Define one too may email accounts. Does he have one secret email account? Or does he just have an extra account? If it's the latter, maybe that's his disposable email. My husband has 2 emails - a primary and a disposable that he uses for stuff that he thinks will generate spam. I have both of those, plus 2 email accounts for my work or professional life - plus another disposable email account that I might check 3-4 times a year whether it needs it or not. Unless he was trying to keep it secret, I'd say it's no big deal. If it was a secret, the secret is more damning than the email in my opinion.

  • Between my dh and I we have several email accounts, and our kids also have multiple emails. Some of them are only for online registrations, whether it's for registering for sites like here or buying something online or whatever. There's only one or two things (things that are registered to paypal, banking stuff, etc) that have our "unlisted" email addresses that we give to family and friends (basically, that are given to real people as opposed to an anonymous internet site...) My ds has one that's used for friends that he knows in real life, and one that's used for gaming.

    It cuts out a LOT of the spam email we get in the accounts we check regularly. Maybe he has an account for stuff like that...

  • Why do you feel the need to micromanage his email accounts?

  • I have 5 or 6 emails ... is that too many? When hubby was working, he had 2-3 emails ... was that too many??

    OMG!! OMG!! OMG!!! Are we BOTH cheating?? 

    Oh and why are some women on here so quick to think "OMG HE'S CHEATING!!!"? Are you (general) REALLY that insecure?

  • What's too many emails accounts? I have 3, one yahoo email account that I have had forever, my main one that when I job search I use that one, and one I use for internet crap, games and freecycle. At one time I had 5 emails. A school email account and a work email account.

    Hubby has really only had one but its not like he checks that one. :P

  • I want to know what is considered "one too many" email accounts? I have my personal hotmail account that I have had for well over 10 years now, I have my work email which is, well WORK, I have a google email account because some of the other websites I am on REQUIRE a google account, but I never check it or use it other than to sign in on my blogger account or youtube. So I have several email accounts, but I'm certainly not cheating on my husband or talking with anyone I shouldn't be! There could be many reasons why he has several accounts, so ask him. Really, if a person were to cheat on their spouse, why do they need 10 different email accounts to do it?? Wouldn't just one extra account that you knew nothing about do it? So if you know about all these accounts, well just ask him why. I think I have a Yahoo account I have forgotten about as well, ha!
