I want to use my main mail address everywhere, even public places. But I doubt if I can guard myself against spam.

Is there a provider specialized in spam protection? Or at least good at it?

At last, given your experience, should I even do it?

    Isn’t it pretty widely known that many email providers support this?

    Personally I’m not a fan of “plus aliasing” because it gives away your base address, and it’s trivial for spammers to strip the alias. I prefer aliases that completely hide the base address.

      Its also VERY poorly and haphazardly handled in websites. Often they won’t let me create an account with it. Or I will be able to create an account using the alias, but then I am left unable to login.

        That’s why we need formal rules. Once regulations are in place (with big penalties) websites magically start to function properly.
