Do You Know About “Ten Minute Mail” ?

Hello everyone,

I sign up for many online services, and I always have to give my email address in order to become a member. I hate doing this because with every new membership comes a deluge of inbox spam, registration requests, and other mailing list junk.

But those days are over. Now there is “Ten Minute Mail”! With Ten Minute Mail you don’t even need to put your name on your email account. No personal data is required, nor are there any time consuming registration blanks to fill out.

Ten Minute Mail supplies you with a ready to go, disposable email address. The address becomes inactive after ten minutes (you can request more time if you need it). Every time you need a new email address just go to the Ten Minute Mail site again and it will automatically generate one for you. How cool is that?

Professor Randy says: Don’t give out your personal email address every time that you connect to an online service. Avoid the ensuing hassles by using a temporary email address that will self destruct in ten minutes. Check out Ten Minute Mail!

    Hello Jonathan,

    As long as you keep 10 Minute Mail open in your browser, you can view and read any mail that comes in on that temporary email address. The site works exactly like a normal email account. Read, reply, forward, 10 Minute Mail does it all. But remember the catch: once 10 minutes are gone, so is your address and your accumulated mail. Just like that.

    …Okay, that is partially true. There is a button on the page to ask for another 10 minutes with that email address. But just remember, the longer you have the address, the longer you are letting them (spam) win.
