I’ve been using Gmail for a pretty long time now. And over the years I’ve accumulated several random gmail addresses (email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, etc.)
So today I finally took a much needed step to combine all those accounts into my main Gmail account. First, I set every one of my other gmail addresses to simply forward to email@example.com (and to delete the original copy). Then, I used Gmail’s “Send email as” feature to allow me to send email from any of my email addresses from my main account.
Now I can stop managing all these random Gmail accounts I’ve created over the years. A small step that I should have taken quite awhile ago, but later is better than never I guess.
