    Do you want an alias or another account?

    To set up another account you need to set up another Apple ID at
    Then login to icloud with that Apple ID.

    To set up an alias, login to your iCloud account at
    click the Mail icon
    then click on the 'gear' icon at the bottom left side and select Preferences
    then select 'Accounts'
    Don't really know if/nor how many aliases you're allowed - my alias addresses have been imported from previous Apple services and indicates I have the maximum permitted with 4 addresses - each of which I can use @ mac, me, or
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    I hope Apple never drops the for those people who still have them. I can't see any reason why they should, and it makes incredibly happen to have it as my main email address.
