Disposable Email Services

Disposable email address services allow you to create a unique (or disposable) email address of your own for each of your contacts. Users may access all the mail sent to the various disposable addresses from a single centralized web-based location or alternatively, the service provider may allow you to configure the service so that mail is forwarded to the POP3 account of your choice.

Any one of the disposable addresses may be deactivated should you start to receive spam through a particular address. Because the address would be unique, you would have the added benefit of knowing exactly who has betrayed your trust. Please note that in some cases, addresses may be deactivated automatically (or expire) after a fixed period depending upon the service provider.

Spaml is an automatic disposable email solution where you don’t have to click. When you visit the site a randomly generated email address is automatically saved to your clipboard. All you have to do is “Paste” in where ever an email address is requested (forms, forums etc) and when you get the email it will show up there instantly on the page.

A temporary inbox is a disposable email address, which doesn’t require registration and can be used to avoid spam. Use this email address in forums, lotteries, erotic sites or wherever. The spammers will never find out your private email address.

MailMoat provides you with a virtually endless supply of disposable email addresses (we call them aliases) for you to pass out to anyone you want. All of them will forward to your existing email account, and you decide just how much email you want to be able to receive on each. If you’re getting overwhelmed by junk mail on an alias, just expire it; MailMoat will reject any future email sent to that address with an “Invalid Email Address” error message – and even if it gets sold and resold a hundred times, the spammers still don’t have your real email address and their database will be polluted with email addresses that are no good.

When you click on the SpamMotel icon on your desktop, a box pops up that lets you type a reminder note to remind you why and to whom the e-mail address is being given. SpamMotel then records this reminder note and logs the date and time. As soon as our server has recorded this information (almost instantly), it creates a special e-mail address for you to give out instead of your real one. Simply paste this special address into whatever field requires it. You’re all set; you don’t need to do anything else.

You can review all the reminder notes you’ve created on a special Log Page that we give you. Reminder notes can be sorted, searched, and even edited. Whenever the sender (or spammer) sends you an e-mail, it is forwarded to your regular e-mail address….along with your reminder note and other useful information, which appears at the top of the e-mail. You have the power to stop spam from being sent to these addresses by deleting any of the special addresses you’ve given out. You can also suspend and resume forwarding for each address at any time.

The original disposable email service was created for email users to regain power over their email from commercial forces and catch them spamming. Only 3 steps are involved – 1) Create an account: Provide a username, a password, and an email address you wish hidden from spammers. 2) Every time you need to give out your email address to somebody you don’t trust, log in to Sneakemail and create a new Sneakemail address. 3) Give this Sneakemail address to them instead.

Mail sent to this Sneakemail address is rerouted to your real address, and when you reply it is rerouted back to the sender. Your real address is never seen. If you receive unwanted mail through this Sneakemail address, such as spam, you can take control by either filtering incoming mail using the Sneakemail filters, disabling the Sneakemail address itself, or disposing of it permanently. You also now know where a spammer got your address.

NetMails.NET is an email system (much like Hotmail or Yahoo). However, it is meant to be used as an email address for subscription emails, online purchases, web sign-up pages etc where your email could potentially be sold to spammers. It can also be used for personal emails, although it may be a little more inconvenient to use than what you expect from a web email system. To get started you create a NetMails.NET email account which remains hidden from potential spammers (unless you give out this email address).

The next step is to create an alias which you may give out to potential spammers. The emails sent to the alias address are then forwarded to your actual NetMails.NET email address, and in this way, your actual email address remains unknown to spammers. If you start to receive spam through one of the aliases that you have created just delete the alias to prevent spam from being forwarded from that alias address. Pricing: $10 per year.

Mailinator works by allowing you to give out a Mailinator email address that you make up on the spot. Pick jonesy@mailinator.com or boohabunny@mailinator.com – pick anything you want (up to 15 characters before the @ sign). Later, come to the site and check the email for that account. It is that easy. Mailinator accounts are created when mail arrives for them. No signup, no personal information, and when you’re done – you can walk away. The emails will automatically be deleted for you after a few hours.

After you save and confirm the email address where you’d like to receive messages, you can give out self-destructing disposable email addresses whenever you want as follows: someword.x.user@spamgourmet.com, where some word is a word you haven’t used before, x is the number of email messages you want to receive at the address (up to 20), and the user is your username. For example, if your username is ‘spamcowboy’, and you give this address to somebody (or, more probably, something): spamelope.2.spamcowboy@spamgourmet.com. The address will be created here the first time it is used, and you’ll receive at most two messages (forwarded to the email address you specify above) on the address. The rest will be indelicately consumed.

This service provides a way to easily create and manage disposable email addresses to hide your true email identity. The Emailias.com system revolves around the basic concept of disguising your email address so it is not exposed to those who would use it, give it away or sell it for commercial gain, in violation of your privacy. This is accomplished by using an email alias, which in our system is called an “emailias”. An emailias acts like a mask to hide your real email address from websites. Simply put, it is an email address that stands in for yours when you have to give it out on the Internet. All the messages addressed to your emailias get sent to your original email address. A website recognizes you by your mask only, and never knows about your personal (private) email address.

Emailias.com Product Features: Unlimited number of unique disposable email aliases; Integrated Browser Button; Choose from multiple primary addresses where you can receive your email; Autorecall provides emailiases previously created for any website; Reply Masking reroutes your replies back through emailias so that they can be made to appear to be coming from the appropriate address and much more!
