One of the privacy features coming with iOS 15 is called Hide My Email. It‘s part of iCloud+ and lets you use random email aliases.
MacMost has a good video on YouTube where he shares 10 macOS Catalina features. They’re smaller features that don’t get the same attention or shoutout by Apple, but they’re good to know. The first one he mentions is a feature that I noticed but was annoyed about. When you hover or long-click the green fullscreen button in Safari, it now brings up a menu window to enter full screen or tile the window to the left or right. While it makes this capability more obvious it also adds an extra step, when just dragging the window by the green button was faster. In any case the video is pretty helpful and you can watch it here.
David Murphy has a good tip: Create an email filter for your bank so you don’t miss important messages like fraud alerts.
Get specific when you set your filters, because you don’t want to accidentally drag in phishing emails that are attempting to pose as your bank. This shouldn’t be a problem if your email service is good about eradicating spam but, when in doubt, I’d probably try to set a combined filter for emails from your bank’s exact domain that contain the word “fraud,” rather than just a filter that catches subject lines with “your bank’s name” and “fraud.”
If you’ve poked around in the Settings app, you may have noticed that Mail supports something called ‘Push’ and ‘Fetch.’

If you’re using S/MIME, PGP, or GPG encryption for messages in Apple’s Mail app or other email client apps, you could be susceptible to what’s being called Efail. You can protect your messages until app updates addressing the flaw are released, and it’s easy to do.
