Where Can I Get a Free Disposable Email Account?

Ah, the joys of the Internet. You can't get the information you need until you give the annoying website your email address and then verify the address by clicking a link they send you. But once you do's spam for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the rest of your life.

But there's hope. You can get a disposable email address for free. You don't even have to do anything...just make up whatever temproary email address you like. Mailinator provides just such a free service for throw-away email addresses. Just type in anything at all, followed by That's your disposable email address.

For instance, I could be or or or any other email name I desire. Then...just visit, type in the made-up address, and voila...there's the message with the verification link. The "account" disappears in a day or so and you'll never have to see any spam sent to that address ever in your whole life.

Ah, the joys of the Internet.
