For several months now I’ve started to receive an unprecedented number of emails from addresses named some variation of “renewal@”.

The issue is that creating an email filter which would move these emails to your junk folder would also inadvertently move legitimate subscription renewal emails to your junk folder as well. What are some steps that can be taken to deal with this issue? Which apps, clients, or email services deal with junk/spam the best?

    I just use a separate email for subscriptions and whatnot vs “actual” email. That helps mitigate a lot of it since I can easily dismiss any “business” communications from one and be on my guard with the other.

    But the real solution imo is to not use email for such things. If I need to renew something yearly, I set up a reminder on my calendar or wherever yearly.
