your setup criteria.
If ashleys@... is getting through to you, then
santaclause@... will too.
Email advertisers know this and send stuff to anyname@....
For 90% of the Web Sites, this stuff gets through to someone.
The other 10% don't accept it or dump it off into a mailbox that gets full
and starts bouncing all incoming mail.
You can specify what is to be done with email addresses that don't meet

It is too late! I have this problem too, and you notice how the email address changes around
your own, either the sender or the receiver. All you can do is filter out those that have some
regular repeat pattern, or likely to, via the email program, and just erase the rest physically
and without looking. It is a curse, but unlike the rubbish that comes through the door you don't
even have to look at them. They'll never give up though because it is too easy, but it is a
waste of their time.
