    So, I have some @gmail.com and @yahoo.com addresses which don't get a huge amount of spam. However, I have like 100 email addresses on my hosting (@myDomain.com) on tens of domains. All of these get spammed to death and I don't know what to do because I have hundreds of spam emails every day and in between them 2-3 important emails that sometimes i can't even see from all that spam. Some of the emails I haven't even submitted anywhere. I think they're doing brutforce spam or something at various addresses like contact@ or webmaster@ and the like.

    Anybody has suggestions on what I could do?

    Cpanel usually comes with something built-in to help with spam. Mine comes with SPAM Assassin, you will have to enable most features like these thou.

    You can create filters that automatically delete emails that contains certain patterns. Thats what I do and it helps a lot. The only down side is that you will need to keep adding filters when you get new spam that hasn't been filtered.

    Do a google search for "how to create email filters on cpanel"
