In the .Mac and .mobleme days, you could add email only account to your main .Mac account (5 address? can't quite remember). Is it possible to do that with iCloud accounts? I have searched and searched, but haven't found a way to do that. I don't mean alias accounts, it isn't the same thing. I have one email only account, but want to add some more if possible. Any help would be appreciated!
You can open a completely independent iCloud account under a different AppleID and just use the email portion of it if you want. You won't get 'push' email on secondary accounts. See: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4020
