What happened to my email-address was innocent and funny.
One day I received regular emails from a woman, I didn't know, but I could see she lived in Belgium.
So I sent her an email back to ask her why I received emails from her.
She replied "I sent this email to all my friends and this email-address "email@example.com" is on the list".
I email back "I don't know you and my email is indeed "firstname.lastname@example.org".
After a few emails it turned out that one of her friends had forgotten the second part of her email-address, so her friend picked another existing email-address and changed the first part.
So her friend gave her this email-address "email@example.com" (= mine) instead of "firstname.lastname@example.org", because her friend thought that the second part wasn't important to send emails.
Erik, you devil ...
But as long as you got clean, well ...
As I said, the emails were all safe without infection, these women used my email-address instead of the right email-address.
It was pure accidently that the first part of both email-addresses were the SAME, while the second part was different.
Separate names with a comma.
