Yopmail Firefox AddonSure there are plenty of services that offer free, temporary and anonymous disposable email addresses. What makes YopMail a bit different is how easily you can create and access them. YopMail provides Firefox, IE and Opera extensions that allow you to create an email address and access the mailbox for that address in seconds.

To get started, just download the addon for your browser. If you’re using Firefox or IE, download and install this search addon. Once it’s installed, just select YopMail.com from your search drop-down list. Enter in a random string of characters, and that will become your @yopmail.com email address. Hit enter, and you’ll be taken to the mailbox for that address. Couldn’t be easier!
