as you can see, I have created special mail account to fight with
collectd mailing list spam. I will inform you immediately after getting
the first spam.

This is not what I meant.
There is an extract from the archived message's html page:

You can see your address (slightly modified) inside <a> tags in the
clear text, e.g. no CSS, no scripting, simply readable text. It is an
easy target for robots and harvesters.

It was a joke. My possible ISPs market their offer as unlimited which
means strictly limited by throughput, speed, aggregation, no fixed IP
and so on. Yes, I can obtain the symmetric high speed connection but for
the price of 1/3 of my salary. It is not adequate to run my own mail
server with filtering capabilities.
