    K: Aliases are great for temporary addresses. Never give out the actual address, just give out the aliases. Then those aliases work as perfect temporary measures that could be deleted, I hope.

    This. It makes filtering out the e-mail by folders and/or tags much, much, much easier.

    I'm not sure how to send an e-mail with a new alias, though. Is that possible? If I remember correctly, when we receive an e-mail at an alias, we can reply to it and it goes out with that alias.

    I do something like this on a company account hosted elsewhere. My primary username is a very obscure word. No email ever goes out with that username, but with the alias for the account.

    My main reason for doing this is so that if I start getting lots of spam at that address, I can set up and start using a new alias for any new e-mail and set the old alias to only accept e-mail to those specific users I expect to get e-mail from.
