A Different Type of Temporary E-Mail Address

I was reading an update from Bay Area Consumers' Checkbook, and they mentioned a new spin on temporary email addresses. Make up a name at mailinator.com. When email arrives there, it is available to read for a few hours and then deleted. No sign-up, no password. Anyone who guesses the account name that you used can read it.

I don't know how much I'd actually use this, but it's a neat idea. And their FAQ is a hoot.

Privacy is covered in the FAQ.
