If you are getting too many spam to this mail address, just delete the disposable address with the specific keyword, and create a new one if you want.

 

Read the following (this is from yahoo)

STEP 1
Create a base name for your disposable address
Since you'll probably be creating multiple disposable addresses and then deleting them as they get spammed, it's best to begin with a base name (such as "shopping") that's different from your primary address. To get started, go to the "Spam" section in the "Mail Options" page and then select "AddressGuard." Next, click "Create a Disposable Address."
STEP 2
Add a specific keyword
After you've created a base name, click on the "Add" button under "Disposable Email Addresses" and type in an appropriate keyword (such as "shoes") for this particular address. Click "Continue."
STEP 3
Decide where to direct messages
Use the pull-down menu to determine where messages sent to this address will be delivered. You can create new folders if you wish. Click "Set Up AddressGuard" when you're done.
