Get a Disposable Email Address Fight Spam

Guest Author - Kim Lynch

Your email address is your ticket to a variety of online services and information. It's a bit disheartening to find a free service online and then discover the real cost is personal information, including your email address.

If you plan to use a site regularly, then providing your email address is in your best interest. A valid email is crucial if you forget your password or need to update information, but what if this is a one time visit? Do you really want to provide your email to yet another site that may bombard you with spam?

One way to combat spammers is to use a disposable email. Some services let you receive email during a set time frame, others expire after you receive a certain number of emails and a few never expire. Registration is required for a limited number and others just let you start using them, no sign-up required.

The one thing they have in common is that you can receive email at your disposable address. This is very important, because email verification is part of the registration process for many websites. A throw away email address will allow enough time to complete the authentication process.

Don't expect any degree of privacy when using an email that has no registration or sign in, only use a disposable address for communications that don't include detailed personal information. These addresses are not necessarily secure or even private. The email address is the log-in for many sites that don't require registration. This means that anyone can access the email by entering the user name.

When selecting a disposable email service, you should decide how much communication you want to have with the business. If you want to track how your email is being used, or receive a limited number of emails, you might want to go with Spam Gourmet or Gish Mail. On the other hand, if you never want to hear from the company again maybe 10 Minute Mail or Incognito Mai might be the way to go. Only you can decide, but there are plenty of options.
