I want to use my main mail address everywhere, even public places. But I doubt if I can guard myself against spam.

Is there a provider specialized in spam protection? Or at least good at it?

At last, given your experience, should I even do it?

    Self hosted.

        I would not suggest self-hosted, but if you really want to then Mailcow is the easy suggestion.

      That’s not a good idea anymore. Especially if you want any assurances that your email will actually be delivered. You’ll be spending a lot of time dealing with non-delivery, blacklists, and spam filters.

        I’ve found that you’re fine as long as you pass all the SPF/DKIM steps, have an SSL cert and use your ISP’s mail relay.

        The biggest issue I face is that occasionally a legit mail server refuses to support SSL/TLS and my server drops the connection. The other 99% of unencrypted mail is spam.
