I think that when bots gather domain names or process a list of domain names, they create email addresses like email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Does selecting something different help to prevent incoming spam email? Does it affect it at all?
I have a domain named www.example.com and I want to create an email address for contacting my customers. I was thinking of using email@example.com, but I suspect that such email addresses are very public, hence some software can produce email address based on domain names. Would it be better to create an email address with something different than firstname.lastname@example.org?
