Email spamming has become a major problem in WWW. There are some solutions such as spam filters and user reports, but none could solve the problem completely so far. So the best solution you can come up with is protecting your email address by yourself. In other words, don’t give your email address to untrusted people.
But again, most of the online services are asking you to enter your email address to register with them. Without providing it you can’t even try it out. OK, you can give a fake email. It might work for some cases, but what if they have email verification?
Previously I was talking about how to create a disposable email address with 10 minutes mail which would be a perfect fit for this kind of situation. But what if you have to receive email from the website you registered for a longer period of time? For that you need longer than 10 minutes mail and here we go with the solution.
