I just bought an entire TLD for signups/spam and made it a catchall. One positive is I know when companies are breached often before they announce it as my pagerduty@domain.com told me a little while ago.


I've used the same strategy for the past few years with great results. Like you said it's really nice to see early on which companies are leaking your info.

It's also nice to be able to kill specific email addresses once a breach has been disclosed and the spam becomes plentiful.

This is a great idea! What's it like viewing email? Which client do you use? Is it easy to see which email address the email was sent to?

Viewing email is as you would expect, the email they sent to is in the header so it's just a single click away in Thunderbird.

Wait, did you really mean "TLD", or just "domain"?
