That is true, but FastMail allows greater control over how spam filtering is applied than most other services. On the other hand, it takes a fair bit of effort and some knowledge to use all the...

Deleted aliases in your own domain are much less of a problem than when they are in one of FastMail's domains. You can avoid lost email just by having a catch all alias (albeit at a cost of receiving...

The best protection is to display the email address as an image. That will defeat the bots. However, it is inconvenient for your visitors as they will be unable to use copy and paste with the address.
