Five Free Temporary Email Services To Avoid Spam

Ads by Google

temporary-email-servicesThe internet is filled with junk. One of the most common pieces of junk is spam. Many of us are bombarded with spam every day and hate it. Although there are a few email providers that provide great spam filtering services, sometimes that just isn’t enough.

Maybe you need to fill in an email for a one-time registration that, you are sure, will only lead to spam. That is where temporary email services come into play. Today we will talk about 5 of those that I highly recommend.

Here they are (in no particular order):

Mailinator

mailinator

Mailinator is definitely one of my favorite temporary email services. Besides providing the standard temporary email, Mailinator offers RSS feeds, a widget for use on your website, the ability to delete messages – just in case someone else is using the same email, alternative emails for each individual email, and 7 domains to use that all redirect to the same email (just in case someone inconveniently blocked @mailinator.com)

YopMail

YopMail has a more advanced user interface than most other temporary email services that makes it look almost like a realistic webmail. Of course there are many features, including: RSS feeds, ability to delete messages, widgets, a realistic email viewer (with all of the functions of a full blown webmail), and the ability to send messages to other @ yopmail.com accounts.

MintEmail

mintemail - temporary email service

MintEmail is another extremely simple and easy to use temporary email service that definitely makes temporary email fast. Simply click “Create New Mailbox” and immediately you have a new, randomly generated temporary email address for use anywhere on the web. Emails are kept for 3 hours, but can be easily extended. Another great feature of MintMail, is the ability to forward emails to any other email address for a certain amount of time to get only the few emails you need without having to constantly check MintMail.

FilzMail

filzmail-temporary emails

FilzMail offers the standards of many temporary email services with RSS feeds, clean interface, and a long-lasting email – in comparison to other temporary email services (24 hours). You can either set your own temporary email address or get a randomly generated temporary address that is automatically updated.

10MinuteMail

10MinuteMail offers users the ability to use a randomly generated, free 10 minute temporary email address that should definitely fill the need of a fast, simple, and one-time temporary email address quite easily (and it automatically updates too!).

    The problem with these are they expire at a predetermine time.
    Often you want the option to keep using the address, and turn it off only if it becomes corrupted.
    Check out Soodonims.com for that

  • SadistiX

    Real useful! Bookmarked!

  • tayker

    I’m content with EndJunk.com. Plus it has more features than some of the others.

  • MrCodeE

    I use sogetthis.com, or one of it’s other sites. Creates the mailbox upon arrival of message. Make up whatever you want as you go.

  • bob

    I use guerrillamail.com although they have recently reduced the length of up time for each address

    Alternatively yahoo allows you to set up temporary addresses through the options menu. You can then delete the address if you start getting spam
