Actually, what I referred to is not 5 Email addresses, but 5 Email ALIAS addresses. These latter are included in the $99 per year.
To add Email aliases, go into Mail>Preferences>Aliases and set them up there. If you look at my Email address here, it is not my real one. The one I am using is an alias of my real one. In this case, my alias is: newtontalk at me.com. I just switched over from Yahoo...
