What was your first email account?

Mine was "quit_horsin_around" back in the day. I lived on a farm, had a long braid (or horse tail) and could kick like a mule, which earned me the very flattering nickname of "Horse." One of my exceptionally clever classmates used to tell me to quit horsing around whenever we got into an argument, and that was where the email was born. Well, that and a love of underscores.

I don't remember exactly. It was in the late 80s, at my university. They were encouraging us to check out this thing called "email", which seemed utterly useless to me at the time. IIRC, my email address consisted of a randomly-generated series of letters and numbers.

4 years later, I wasn't in school anymore, but still living in the same university town. Now I had a girlfriend almost 1000 miles away (who had an email address) and I finally had a reason to use my email address — but I couldn't remember it. I visited the computer science lab and they gave me a new one. It was pretty boring: my college nickname. That was the first email address I actually USED.

My first is still my online cognomen (14 years now), although I've changed email providers a few times.

Oh my gosh, I just nostalgia'ed hard about those AOL discs/floppies that they sent out back in the 90's.

It was sugar14300 @ AOL... Every name I tried to pick through aol was taken and My mom has a precious moments collection and the house said Sugar Town... so hence the sugar... and aol assigned the numbers.

Mine was (and still is) firedance882003 @ yahoo...they added the 2003 bit automatically though.
Made it ten years ago or so when I was trying to sign up for neopets for the first time. xD

Mine was back in the day, before AOL popularized customized email addresses. My email address was a randomly generated combination of numbers and letters. It was like n2jk34jk32@prodigy.net or something. I was just a child.

Oh my gosh - that would have been awful to have to remember as a kid! I guess that if it was paired with a randomly generated password, your security would at least be pretty high.

I was pretty young. I think it had something to do with guitars and neopets. D:

My father has always been a tech-geek, so he set up his own server named after the boat he and his crew used for scuba diving. When my two brothers and I were old enough to read, he set up emails for us. Mine was jade@therampage.com.

I had a bunch of AOL screen names. DazedDaisy, TatteredDaisy, LaughingDaisy and a handful of others, all with some number after that represented my age or some such.
