|assuming your websites has a sign-up and you provide some free credit/usage for each new sign ups.|
In gmail and GSuite accounts (not sure if other email services does the same) you can do the +1 trick.
Add +N after your username and receive the email in the same sandbox (which is actually useful in many cases).
The point is, knowing that, do you consider
as 6 different and unrelated accounts in your db?
it is fair to _regex_ the email and remove the +1 trick?
