With your own domain name you could also set up your own mail server
at least for the inbound email. Doing that gives you an unlimited
number of "email accounts". I'm currently approaching 400 aliases
to "jon". If I start a new relationship with a vendor or a mail list
I create an additional alias. My filtering pulls out various things,
like this list, and at the end splits into "jon" and "NotToJon".
I do roughly the same. My outbound server is at my hosting company, and
I use Port 587 and SMTPAUTH and I use MX records to direct my incoming
mail to their servers. I also have a "catchall" address for anything
coming in that doesn't match a real email box. If I start getting spam
at an imaginary address, I just go into my settings at the hosting
company and block that address. It also means that if/when I change my
ISP I don't have to change any of my settings because I don't ever use
my ISP's servers.
