Email spam received at multiple email addresses?
As a counter measure against spam I always use an unique email address for everything. These unique addresses get forwarded to my real email address setup in cpanel.
For example, my real email address might be email@example.com; then they are forwarded addresses like firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, etc.
Each forwarded email address only gets used once for a specific purpose. If I receive spam from a particular address then I'll know you it was from and can disable that email forwarder without affecting the others.
My problem is I am receiving spam daily on separate email forwarders.
Although most of these emails are used to sign up for emailing list, I am doubtful that several separate email list owners have independently decided to spam me.
Could this be a brute force attack or a problem with my email server?
