  • How long have you been using your e-mail address?

    Just wondering as I have an account with Orange that I've had since 2001 - which has now been shit-striken with spam mainly...but I still use it.

    And my recent hotmail is about 2 years old as I basically needed to get rid of a lot of contacts from ye old days of heavy msn-ing.

    It made me wonder has anyone been using the same e-mail address for a long time, like 10 years or something?

      Which one I've got 4 (well ones is work which I've always had since about 2002)

      ManicFan2k@msn.com = 2001
      Bewitched_Fan_2k@yahoo.com = 2002


      then created Roger_Swift_1983@yahoo.co.uk about 18 months ago when I was job hunting for a few months as I just wanted something more professional sounding on my CV but I've carried on using it.

      from 1998 to 2001 I had a freeserve one that was something like musicfreak79@freeserve.co.uk but that's long abandoned now. Formatted when we got broadband but then never again bothered installing outlook/outlook express.

        I've been using the same e-mail for 9 years now. Have never really had any reason to change it.

              My AOL one I've had since early 2000. Those were the days..

              My current hotmail one I think started in 2001 - so seven years.

                    One did! One got weird emails from someone i didn't know! I was always protective of my addresses so I would pick very long passwords! But i always ended up forgetting them! Now I've got shorter, yet equally as hard passwords and have them all saved!

                      I've been hacked on MSN, Bebo and Runescape twice.

                      I've always kept the same email address though for around 3/4 years. It's just my name and my birthdate so it's a lot better to put on CV's than some of my friends' addresses, who have things like: o_m_g_i_love_dat_cheesio@whatacrapaddress.com

                          Yeah sorry, I was bored!
                          I was going to keep it up for at least a week, but It's too difficult and I've got tired of it now! I wanted to be unique! Solange has been inspiring me!

                                    I made one in 2001 hoddituk@yahoo.com

                                    then when I went to college i made a new one re_mixed2003@yahoo.co.uk which i later changed to the same except 2004 cos the year had changed lol
                                    I continued to use that one up until last year when I realised it wasn't actually 2004, and I changed to hotmail. My addy is now beyoncesboi@hotmail.co.uk beyoncesboi is also my name on every message board except here. lol

                                              I created my first email address (revliskiuq@hotmail.com) back in 1999, which I kept for about 3 months. My friends thought it was too annoying to spell out/remember and I got sick of explaining to everyone what it meant.

                                              Since then I've been using garywong_uk@hotmail.com to this day, so that's about 9 years.

                                              Oh and I have a Yahoo email account too, which is probably older than my current one by a few weeks, but I have never used it.

                                                  I've had my BT Internet one for about 3 years and my current Hotmail one for about a year... I tend to change my Hotmail one quite regular cos of spam and I've been with loads of different ISPs over the years so never kept one for that long.
