Tired of using your valid email accounts for registration in various web sites? Maybe it’s just a message board you want to read one time only and from which you don’t want to be saddled with a lifetime of spam.
The convention is just to sign in to Yahoo Mail!, Gmail or other web based email systems. But here’s a new trick – 10 Minute Mail!
It is free! It gives you an email address that vanishes after 10 minutes. There’s no registration, no verification. Just click over to the site and hit “Get my 10 Minute Mail e-mail address.” You’ll instantly be given an address that ceases to exist after 10 minutes. You can then use this address in filling out web forms or whatnot, and a very simple web-based interface gives you full access to any mail the account receives. You can reply to any messages, but you can’t send mail to an account that hasn’t already emailed you. If you can’t get the job done in 10 minutes, you can reset the timer to 10 minutes at any time.
