Since this is my own domain, and all my friends and fam and contacts have this address, I would like to keep it.
If the address is webmaster@------.com and I use Outlook
...what would you suggest?
- Spam filter of some sort? If so, what do you suggest?
- Is there an easy way to change the alias without having to inform all contacts?
2nd.- If you don't want to change your address, just do a redirection to a gmail account, and then download the gmail account with your email client
Don't care too much for your privacy/email accounts: any account called webmaster@yourdomain, info@ contact@, admin@, sales, and so on, will be automatically tested and (depending of the email server response -delivered, unknown, full mailbox...-) will be loaded with tons of spam.
So, your email address for this year could be something like
and change each year. It's not much more difficult for your contacts to remember than your original address--provided your contacts can be trusted to know what year it is...
The other bonus is that by having a different emal address for each organisation etc you can tell exactly where someone obtained the email address they're using to spam you.
