It will help you to start reducing your inbox overload.

All my important emails are going to a specific place which allows me to access them quickly and easily.

There are many other reasons though why getting several email accounts could be the answer for you, so let's take a look below.
You want to sound more professional
I once met a client who had the email sueluvsbj@?????.com 🤣
Can you imagine the responses that she got when she was applying for jobs or had to read that email address out over the phone?
After the laughter stopped, do you think that people would have taken her seriously?
I was only too happy to help her get a new more professional sounding email.
She was happy that she didn’t have to use that embarrassing email address ever again.
If you have an email address that was created in the heat of the moment.
With a name that does not sound like you can be taken seriously.
Then I suggest that you go and get another email created today.

You want to filter spam
If you are like me, you like shiny new things.
Anything related to internet marketing and an easy life?
Unfortunately what happens when you sign up to most email lists to do with internet marketing, is that you receive an avalanche of emails.
Most of them will be talking about the latest software, product, service that is going to change your world.
So you download the free report then
Email overload you get sent every offer that is launched from now till the end of time.
Some of the lists I am on will send me up to 3 emails per day, these soon build up to an unmanageable number.
So I use my spam email address and all their promotions go there instead so I can read their offers when I am ready.
It is also a good way to filter out the marketers who are just trying to sell to you rather than educate you.

It is also a good idea to have an alternative email address for signing into free hotspot Wi-Fi services if you don't want to give away your personal email.
You want to be anonymous
If you like to take part in online debates, forums or any other activity which means you leaving an email address, then getting multiple email accounts may be a good idea.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of angry people in the world today, who don't take too kindly to different points of view.
Having a separate email address could keep you at least partially anonymous.
Any negative responses to your comments would not impact your personal email address as they would go to your alternative email address.
You want to be able to post publicly
Sueluvsbj@?????com, probably would not look right if it was on an online website as the contact details.
So having a different email address, such as with a company name or your proper name means that if you do have to have your email details displayed online.
It will look more professional and there is more chance of someone actually bothering to send you an email.
You want a backup
It is absolutely vital that you have at least one additional email address.
Most email providers will ask for an alternative email address if you get locked out of your account so that they can send you verification details.
Having at least one backup email will means if you are ever unfortunate enough to be locked out of your main email account.
You will be able to regain access to it eventually.
You run a business
Having multiple email accounts for your business can help you to direct specific queries to the appropriate people within the company
For example, you have an email firstname.lastname@example.org which is directed to your sales agent
Or email@example.com which is directed to customer services.
Doing the above is a great way to track your marketing as well if you are running a campaign
You are running a campaign
As I mentioned above, having different email addresses allows you to measure the effectiveness of any marketing that you are undertaking.
Let's say for example you had an offer online, where in order to get the information that you promise.
The prospect had to send an email to a specific email address in order to receive confirmation of their enquiry.
Alternatively, you may have a specific contact email address on your website which is only on one page.
If you were to receive an email to this specific email.
It indicates that this page is getting some traffic, engagement and conversions.
