Disposable Email Addresses

Tired of all the spam?  One method to avoid the spam is to use a disposable email address in those situations where you have to give it out.  Say you want to sign up to access some forum or blog, and they require an email address so that you can “opt in” to their system. All you need is a throw-away email address to recieve their opt-in email – and you avoid the inevitable spam emails that will follow.

There is a website called 10 Minute Mail where you can get a free email account for just this purpose.  Pretty slick idea.

    Why bothering assigning an email address first. When you use for example a site like http://www.mytrashmail.com you have trillions of email addresses ready for immediate use.
