List of 20 Temporary Email Services
I'm currently tweaking the new theme which takes more time than I thought. I just want to apologize for the lack of articles in the last days. Once the new theme is published I will have more time to write articles again.
I have been writing about temporary (disposable) email services before which can be used to register to certain web services without revealing your true email address. This is great if you do not want to risk that the website is selling your email address.
One should not forget the security implications though. Since most emails are publicly accessible, it is possible to access sensitive information such as password reset requests as well. It is therefore recommended to use public email providers only for sign ups where this is not possible or where it does not matter to you.
I have taken the liberty to paste the complete list from Sizlopedia in my blog.
- Mailinator is a free email service that does not require you to sign-up. Just select any mail address in the form email@example.com and you are free to check if emails have arrived for it on the Mailinator website.
- MyTrashMail is another temporary email service that you can use without account registration. It supports several different domain names that you can use, and supports temporary private accounts which you need to register for but can then use exclusively.
- MailExpire offers several interesting options. You can select the private lifespan for the mail box, and also enter an email address to receive reminders to.
- TemporaryInbox is not available anymore.
- MailEater has been abandoned.
- Jetable is still available. You can create a temporary email address for a select interval and can check it online without registration.
- SpamBox provides you with similar options as Jetable. Pick a random email address and set the time you want it to be available.
- GuerillaMail one of the few tools that provides you with sending capabilities and not only email checking ones.
- SpamHole is no longer available.
- 10MinuteMail lets you create email addresses that expire automatically after ten minutes.
- DontReg is one bigger, better, faster and safer temporary email inbox solution

- PookMail is no longer available as a temporary email service. The operators have released the code as open source though.
