If you answered 3 or 4, you’d be right on the recommended average.
Think about the categories of how you communicate through email.
- Work/School – your UTHSC email address that should be only used for UTHSC correspondence. (You might want to review the Email standard for the permitted use of UTHSC email accounts.)
- Personal – Family, friends, relatives, personal social network accounts, house electricity bills, house properly tax notifications, etc.
- Spam – newsletters, and notifications from various websites, used when you have to enter an email address knowing it will probably be sold to others.
- Bank – if you have given your personal or work email addresses to too many people, using a separate email for your most sensitive accounts protects them from being part of a data breach.
