Pro Tip #1: "Use a different domain name for the from address while sending out marketing emails" For example if your primary domain is example.com.

Off course forward all emails received by support@example-mail.com to support@example.com (Why? see Pro Tip #2).

Pro Tip #2: "Never use fake emails like do-not-reply@example.com for the from address for any email you sent. Yes not even for marketing emails" You will be surprised how many time customer just reply to emails they have received even if it is an unrelated marketing email. You will regularly see customers receiving a monthly newsletter and they will hit reply asking "Can you change the shipping address on my order?"

Ath Speaker Series Kicks Off with Free Speech Talk by TV Host Dave Rubin
“Fraught with cognitive dissonance and contradictions, Dave Rubin's speech at the Ath tonight certainly showed how intellectual you can sound when you speak with confidence and don't acknowledge the context of the words you use,” Shirrey wrote in an email to TSL. “He used many commonly used phrases about the virtue of 'the American Dream' and many misconceptions of anti-racist schools of thought to claim that politically correct speech shuts down conversations. [W]ords like 'rape' distract from Thomas Jefferson's overall image, and power and privilege are distracting words in the free-speech 'debate.'”
