I've got into a bit of a mess with my email situation, and am looking for a way to resolve this as painlessly as possible!
I have one Hotmail account, and three Google account. Just to complicate things further, I have various Google services spread across the three Google accounts (Gmail of course, but also Documents, Reader, Chat, Shopping amongst other things) and my Hotmail details were leaked in the recent EA hack, which means despite me being relatively secure (I've changed my password) I am always getting the Captcha popping up when I login due to unsuccessful login attempts from other people.
So now I need to try and fix this. I do like the idea of having two email accounts - one for personal emails, and one that I can happily sign up to sites randomly on, but I find Google's interface of linking Gmail accounts (IE having a tab for your other accounts, and also having limited access) to be far from ideal.
With that in mind, I was wondering:
Is there a way to quickly merge my Google accounts, within reason? So documents, checkout, chat and everything else will just run through a single account.
Is there a web interface (or piece of desktop software) that will let me easily check both of my Gmail accounts, all from one place, whilst still keeping them relatively separate? (IE an option to switch between view both accounts, or just a single one)
My Hotmail account, what can I do about that? I'm not kidding when I say I have probably signed up to hundreds, probably thousands of sites over the past 10 years using this account.
Any suggestions very welcome.
