Accounts for Spouses Who Share An Email
Signing up for an account at the Tampa Bay Presbyterian Church requires a unique email address.
If you and your spouse prefer to share a single email address, there are a couple of things you can do to have separate accounts on this website.
Create an Email Alias for Your Current Email Address
Some email providers allow you to create an alias for your email address. The alias acts exactly like the original email, but the characters that make it up are different.
For example, both Gmail and Hotmail allow you to create an alias on the fly by inserting a "+" followed by some text immediately before the @ in your existing email address.
For example, if the email address you share with your spouse is firstname.lastname@example.org, Gmail would allow you to create an alias by using email@example.com. Sign up for an account at this web site with firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will think you have a unique email address.
Hotmail allows the same aliasing technique. If your email address is email@example.com, create an alias by using something such as firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other email providers may provide different ways to create an alias for your shared email address.
Create a New Email Address and Forward All Mail to Your Shared Email Address
If your email provider does not allow aliases, you can sign up for a new email address at Gmail (for example), and forward all mail to your existing shared email address. Use the new email address you create to sign up for an account at this web site, but continue to send and check your email at the old shared email address.
