We have one Apple ID and many family members with iPads, iPhones etc... As it stands we all receive all incoming imessages and this is impracticle moving forward.


Other than setting up multiple Apple ID's how do we set up each user with an individual iMessage address?


I understand how to do this using a phone numbers but cannot stop all users getting imessages sent to the Apple ID email address. I have tried inputting secondary email addresses but get error messages advising "account already in use".


Long story short.....Can I set up all family devices on the one apple ID but designate each member with an individual email address that precludes them from receiving iMessages sent to the "master" Apple ID address?
