    Hotmail since I've abandoned ICQ ages ago otherwise it may have been the oldest. Probably I won't be abandoning my oldest email as there is not much difference amongst the alternatives, so why bother.

    Well, since i was a late comer to the Internet (2010,) my first account that i still use is Techspot itself. I registered Techspot under my Yahoo address, but since i don't use it anymore that doesn't count (Gmail all the way for me now)

    I am currently registered at 35 websites that require a password; I only visit 8 on a regular basis though.

    But yeah, Techspot was the first!

    My Gmail adress. I never even check it, unless needed for registration, or told to do so.
  10. What is a "password manager" ..???
  11. Probably my EQ account, since March 1999
  12. My aol account, which I still use every day for the email account, that I registered back in 1995. Back when going online at a whopping 2400 bps modem...good times!

    My Yahoo! account is the oldest one I still use.

    Besides that, my Steam account and my TS account (not kidding!) are probably the oldest ones I'm still using on a daily basis.
  15. My bank account :D

    Boy, that's a good question and had to think on it a while. Probably my first Yahoo! e-mail account which was created in 2001.

    A lot of the accounts I had have died or been replaced over the years. Oldest I could find right now is my Anandtech account. The forum says I joined on 10-12-1999 (I imagine that's October 12).
  23. hotmail, created in april 2000. I do still have an active i.c.q account but as of right now I cannot find the loggin. The number starts with 2xxxxx. It's very low. I started using it on day one.

    hotmail in December of 2002. Before that(1997) we had a "family" email address that everyone used to make accounts. It wasn't until we wanted accounts at the same websites that we needed to have our own.

    My aol signon which I check once a week. My first email was excite but I abandoned it due to adware. I liked aol at the time because for free it included some of the first anti spyware programs.
