As an internet user, we all have to deal with spam messages we receive in our email-box. most website aren’t helping matters, you have to compulsorily include an email address when signing up, soon you start receiving spam messages from them.
Aside using your email for sign-ups, littering the internet with your email, your email could be picked by scrapers and in no time your inbox will be filled with numerous number of spam messages.
I previously advocated the need for website to incorporate the OpenID system where internet user use any ID be it from yahoo, WordPress, Google or any accredited OpenID associate to login to website but only few website are using it.
If you are tired of spam, i present to you Mailinator. it provide free disposable email address. Mailinator is a different kind of email service. The biggest difference is that you don’t need to sign up. Any email name you can think of already exists at Mailinator.com. Want [email protected]? You got it. Want to be JacquesKooStow? ScaryGavyn? GraysonTheMason? No problem. They exist when you create them and they are just waiting for you to check your inbox. you do not need to create an account, all you need is a unique and complex name to use as your username. mind you, all email are public as any body can access for example, your email address if the person can figure out your username as no password is required.
I personally use it to register at websites that exist primarily to capture email while rendering a little service.
You cannot send email from Mailinator. After several hours, all email is auto-deleted. There is no real security here. Mailinator has strict rules about what kind of email it receives. Plain text is best, html is filtered. Images, attachments, and fancy stuff are simply stripped away.
