Certainly does look like a good tip fo gmail users - thanks for sharing. :thumbs:

If your ISP offers unlimited mailboxes, or you have a domain name you can also do something similar.
Ive not been able to catch anyone out as such yet - aside from one unintentional leak.
Most of my spam seems to be dictionery guess type spam such as bob@ or  vxz@myemail.com :/
