Initially I subscribed with one of my main addresses and certainly
there are too many messages each day, so I did set up a filter at the
server to resend all the messages to a gmail account where I can check
them without any problem with my normal account.

Then someone asked how to change the email address, so I did follow
the advice and changed the account to the gmail so it doesn't put any
stress at all on my normal account.
