Need a quick throw-away email address? Try Mailinator!
In the latest issue of Software Development, I ran across a short sidebar article on an email service that is rather unique. The site is called Mailinator, and it's designed to be used as a disposible email site.
You don't sign up for an account. It creates the "account" when it receives the email. For instance, if I send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, the account for that address will be set up when the email gets there. When I go to the web site, I just type in twduff and I'll see the inbox for that name. No password, no fuss, no anything. Just an inbox.
Privacy? None. What happens to the email? It's auto-deleted in a few hours. Can you send email from there? Nope. Can you delete the email yourself? Nope. What if the information there is private? Stupid move on your part... :-)
A nice option to use for online forums or site registrations where you either don't ever want email or you don't want any email after you get the registration confirmation.
