With some providers, you receive any mail addressed to
user+anything at example.com or user-anything at example.com. In such a case,
you do not need your own domain. To use it, however, you probably
need access to the envelope recipient address (transferred in the SMTP
protocol), because the To: header in the email header is unreliable.

On a side note: for a time, I suffixed my username in each of my usenet
postings with a different identifier. The main result was that I started
to receive each spam message multiple times, once to each identifier.
I turned that feature off again.

Ciao.                                                           Vincent.
