Rather than mess with your email address, the best thing to do is to set
your mail reader to filter your incoming email. The basics are to filter
mail from mailing lists first, directing that either to "in" or a dedicated
mailbox, as you want. Next, filter anything that has your email address
in either the "to" or "cc" field; these are generally for you personally
and can go in your in box. Anything else is probably spam; filter it to
a spam mailbox which you can check once in a while for anything that
shouldn't have been filtered.
