What Are Temporary Emails & How To Use Them

What do you do when a website requests an email address and password to get the informatoin you want, but you really don't want to give out your email address?  Maybe you'll get on a spam list or even a legitimate newsletter list, but you just don't want the hassle of getting more useless email.

The answer is simple!  Use a temporary email address that expires in a few hours.  It will last long enough to let you jump through hoops.  A temporary email address allows you to receive emails for a short period of time and, for instance, to confirm a sign-up at a website just to get yourself temporary access to some desired information.

But then your email disappears after a few hours, you're already done with that website forever and you won't get spammed or receive any unwanted email.  Tricky, right?

So check out these temporary email providers:

Mailinator.com
10MinuteEmail.com
myTrashMail.com
GuerrillaMail.com

And don't worry, you don't have to give out any personal identifying information at all to any of these services.
