Aaaand this is why using your own domain for your email is a good thing. Per-service email addresses are a God send.


@kev I'm doing the same by creating an alias for each website requiring a subscription.

Rules are on server side, every client sees the same thing, and you can quickly identify who is the bad boy that sells your email to spammers...

@Wivik @kev I'm using that method since 2011 and had a few funny conversations since.
A guy at the automobile club asked me if I'm another emploee there. A real estate agent asked me the same.
The funniest reaction came from another one who tried to convince me to not to use that name, because Remax is a protected trade mark. 😜
Anyway, he started to send me his newsletters without asking for permission... 🤡
