Mailinator.com - A simple disposable email service

Is a website asking you for an email address and you don't want to give your primary address because you know you'll get spam-bombed?   Don't feel like filling out the forms for Gmail, Yahoo or Hotmail?  www.mailinator.com offers the perfect service.  No forms to fill out.  Heck you don't even have to go to the website. 

Just makeup an address with a domain of mailinator.com.   Then when you need to retrieve the address go to the website and enter the email you made up.  Voila!  You can read the email sent there. 

Some caveats:

  1. The email address is truly disposable.  It'll only last for a few hours
  2. There's no expectation of privacy.  Anyone can access that email address.  So as mailinator says, if you use the website for your super-secret email you're just being silly.  Hear that Governor Palin?
