Default Which Email To Do What Task?

OK, I’m confused. I have FossaMail as my desktop email application, and I have four different email addresses, and now each of those addresses wants to be my mail collector. So do I scrap the four separate accounts and do one with aliases, or keep the four and designate one as a mail collector? Does it matter? And I can’t lose track of my original email account – the ISP I pay every month – or can I?

So why four accounts? Well simple, really. Each account is linked directly to a specific computer, or perhaps better said, each of my computers has its own email address, except the “Master” (original) account which has two (one for business, one for personal use). It just seems over complicated.

Any opinions out there? Thanks in advance.

Regards,
BearPup

Hi I am not sure what you are trying to achieve . why do you need a specific email for a specific computer . I would have thought it easier to be able to access all email accounts on any pc or anywhere for that matter . I seldom use an isp email address because if I change my provider then it becomes a problem

The only time I've heard the term "mail collector" is in relation to the Mail Collector service.

I do much the same thing using my email client to send and receive messages for several different accounts of different types: hotmail/outlook, gmail, ISP, this site, etc. Mail Collector appears to add one feature that I don't have. If you type in the email account it sets up the mail collection automatically inone step whereas I have to take two steps to do the same.

Guys, please check the date of the thread before posting. The thread is over an year old, and therefore, your replies here won't matter much to the OP anymore.

If I type the above in UPPERCASE it converts the laughing faces from colonD to colond. But if I type LOL as lol then the laughing faces are unchanged.
