Email Choices

I tend to jump around from service to service, platform to platform. There are a handful of them I bounce between. I am always trying to narrow that list down. Currently I am narrowing down email. I have a few accounts from many services.

  • Gmail
  • Outlook.com
  • Fastmail
  • Protonmail
  • Tutanota
  • Hey
  • icloud

Not even included in the above lists are emails linked to specific domain names I own which are hosted on my Fastmail account. This tends to make things a tad confusing for me as time goes on. I have health care providers contacting me on one, family on another, some friends on this one, some friends on that one, recruiters have all of them somehow. It's a mess.

So, to narrow things down I am keeping my Fastmail account with two email domains, one for personal stuff and one for work/dev stuff. The personal one I have used for quite a few years anyway with the apples.email domain. And since I own timapple.dev also I am going to keep that for work/dev related stuff.

I wish it were this simple. But I still must deal with Gmail because I need my google account. I think I will just forward this to my personal address. I will do the same for outlook.com for the same reasons.

Let's see if I can make this work and stick to the two main addresses. I'll let everyone know how it goes in the future. Will I stick with it or just continue the constant jumping around?

Only time will tell, I guess.


You'll only receive email when they publish something new.
