One guy lives in Utah, another goes to Colorado University, another lives in Southern California, and there are a few more. I regularly get emails for these guys regarding classes, vehicles, rental properties, etc. I also get signed up for lots of spam and unwanted porn crud. I did create a label and look through it from time to time to make sure there isn't anything meant for me. I think the best solution is to create a new email address that is somewhat unique and forward the old one to it until the people you want email from know it. Also, I would never get rid of the old address. You never know what online account you barely use that you forgot to change over.
