???

Do you want an alias or another account?

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

To set up an alias, login to your iCloud account at icloud.com
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 icloud.com.

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 have a BUNCH, all under one Apple ID.

I have six different identities (ie the part before the @ sign) and three variations on most of them (ex. johnsmith@mac.com, johnsmith@me.com, johnsmith@icloud.com).

Some have only two variations because I signed up for them when me.com first arrived.

I hope Apple never drops the @mac.com 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.
