Have you ever hesitated before giving your email address to a company to finish a sign-up in the fear that you might be spammed? A temporary, anonymous email service can avert this problem for you. I will profile two of the best services for this below.
Mailinator– gives you a public email address that you can use for receiving confirmation emails. Anyone can see what comes to this address, so don’t use it for anything secure or confidential.
TempAlias– Sets up an alias for your existing email address: put in the tempalias address in a web form and when tempalias gets the email, they will forward it to your regular address to protect your identity. You can set the duration that the alias is valid for- a certain number of days or a certain number of messages.
