As many of my readers know, I suffer from terminal uniqueness. I think I am the only one with these problems. So let me state for the record I am not sure how I have gotten myself into this mess.
Some friends have figured out that I have a gmail account and for the some of the entities that I am associated with, I have a gmail account with them. I forward all of the corporate gmail into my imho account for simplicity sake.
However the Gmail account that is “@gmail” I would never forward anywhere.
It is my joiner account. You got a newsletter you want me to read? send it to my gmail. I won’t read it but I will scan and search.
I thought that was a brillant way to use the account, and ASSumed others did likewise.
But some friends insist on using my @gmail account as the primary and get annoyed that I only find these things months later while searching the mail.
So this post is to tell you that email@example.com is not intended for anything but archives.
Am I alone in using Gmail this way?
