"[email protected]" e-mails

Elijah Yang asked:

I constantly receive e-mails from my “[email protected]” and it is flooding my gmail inbox with 8-10 e-mails a day. Could I know what is the convention or common practice that most people use to handle such e-mails?

Do they set-up another e-mail account just for receiving these e-mails? Like maybe “[email protected]” or is there a common e-mail name that people create just for these e-mails? (like maybe [email protected]?)

Because I am quite sure that no one really reads these e-mails.

My answer:


Don’t configure your servers to send unnecessary email.
