  • 10 Minute mail is my favorite because it works like a regular email client but also allows you to add an extra 10 minutes.

  • What about GuerillaMail? That’s the one I use ALL the time…

  • I’ve got to disagree with the above, 10 minute mail is probably the worst of all. Mailinator rocks!

  • This would be super helpful for anyone who gets paid for signing up for different quotes and offers and does surveys online….you can make a little cash that way, but the spam gets so bad you give up before you ever make your first $10.

  • To add to the list try http://www.expiremail.com its a free, anonymous 15 minute disposable email account service. It comes complete with the ability to send & receive emails with attachments upto 2MBs in size as well as the ability to reply and forward emails. Other features include a resetable timer, randomly generated email address and no limit on the amount of accounts you can create. Try it, you’ll like it.

  • I use http://www.mailguard.me
    Here is info on the features I cut and pasted from their site…

    MailGuard goes a step further in the technical implementation. It operates with disposable domains! New disposable email addresses are created in the form of [email protected] where the "abc" part is a temporary, disposable domain name. When the temporary email address reaches expiration, the *domain name* is removed from the DNS servers. This means that the IP address of the mail server is no longer known to potential email senders, and thus they cannot even make a network connection to send you mail. Who needs mail filtering?! Don't let them even reach your machine!

    It is also possible to set up a number of addresses in advance and specify that they lie dormant until the first email arrives. Upon first email arrival and address activation, then the expiration timer can begin. With this feature it is possible for a user to create a number of nice looking addresses in advance that may be used in printed or other permanent form. These addresses can be handed out when needed without having to manage the expiration properties. The expiration properties will not become active until the first message arrives.

    MailGuard also provides SafeReply™. Once somebody sends you email via a MailGuard address, you may have the need to reply to their message. SafeReply™ allows you to simply reply directly to the message in your normal email program, no matter which email program it is. Your reply will be routed back through the MailGuard mail servers and your identifying information (i.e. your email address) will be stripped from the mail headers. So your reply will appear to arrive from an address like "[email protected]" rather than from you, even though you simply replied from your regular email program. How awesome is that!!?

    MailGuard is currently developing browser plugins that permit you to generate these disposable email addresses quickly and on the spot while you are filling our a form online at any site. This takes everything to another level. The moment you need a temporary or disposable email address, you will simply click and get a new one generated, without ever leaving the page you are currently looking at. This is the true utility of MailGuard.

  • A really great articale thanks,this is a Disposable email or as some call them Temporary email http://www.emailthe.net the main reason to use these type of sites is to stop spam from entering your business or personal email as we are all aware spam is one of the biggest problems people have when surfing the net.
