Emails are one thing which I check every day and being an online user, many time I have to sign up for many forums or Email newsletter to download stuff. Though, this one time sign up always turns out to be someone trying to sell me something later. I have nothing against it, but I want to make sure I keep me Email inbox clean and see only important Emails. Let me introduce to temporary Email services which will let you create temp Email accounts which will self-destruct within some time.
The idea of using self-destruct Email id is to sign up for those forums which require login to view or download stuff which requires one-time installation. Here is a bad ass idea, which works for me is keep using the premium features of software’s which offer 15-30 days complete trial.
When we register anywhere, the biggest problem which we get is lots of emails and newsletter, and at the end of the day, we have to count them as spam so that all mails goes directly to the spam box.
Anyways, the choice is yours if you need to use your real Email address or this destructible one. In case, if you want to use your real Email address and using Gmail, you can put extra alpha numeric Id after +, for example, if your email is email@example.com you can make it firstname.lastname@example.org and email will be delivered to your email ID only. Now, you can use email@example.com to sign up for those one-time registration services and you can set filters in Gmail to directly trash Email coming to your +firstname.lastname@example.org Id.
Anyways, lets back to the topic and let’s find some kick-ass web services which you can bookmark and use it at the time of need.
