Create an account without transmitting your real email address
I woud like you to create a relay like Firefox : link here
It would serve to protect your real email adress from hackers
Vivaldi would create a false email adress for you but you will receive on your right email adress all the messages sent to your false adress email ! I hope I told it clear, if you don't understand, clink on the link to see the Firefox feature.
@antoinerenault If this becomes popular, sites and services will just block the relay addresses and demand your real one, would be my concern.

not really. spamgourmet.com is a service which I use since 15+ years and most of my logins use a mail from this service. https://erine.email is a similar service, even with your gmail address you can create an unlimited amount of email-aliases
IMO it's a very good way, to limit impacts of privacy breaches because you can use one email(alias) for one service
@derDay It’s the same thing. Spamgourmet is likely so obscure that it flies under the radar. Services don’t want destructible addresses. For instance, did you sign up for Vivaldi with a spamgourmet address?

@derDay I see. Well, i have simply a bunch of email providers and one of them is for signing up to accounts, services, whatever. All the email accounts have different purposes. Matter of taste I guess. Personally I wouldn’t wanna feed everything into one provider. And if I want to test a signup or need a throwaway address for something, I use fakemail.

You have the UUMail service which also works very well as a relay.

@antoinerenault It’s a good idea, but really, just use this:
@Gwen-Dragon These alias accounts are only for receiving mail, not sending it.
@MarcAurele Alibaba ??
I don't know that I'd trust that one.
