in thread I filter my mail

I do something similar - I set up a subdomain that's configured to accept anything@, and every time some website wants me to signup and requires me to supply my email, I use <website address>@subdomain as the address. It doesn't stop the random spammers (the people who email sales@, info@, webmaster@ etc) but it's useful for seeing which sites sell my address.
