How many emails do you read daily? I bet more than a few dozen … Some people might have multiple accounts from the same provider, like Google, Yahoo and others … For those who maybe have two accounts scattered on Google, Hotmail and others and those who, like me, have some accounts of famous service providers and with some own domain account.
