Lost URL for website that helps fight SPAM
« on: August 27, 2008, 11:58:24 AM »
Hi all,

I just realized I cannot recall the URL of a website that offers the following free service : the website has a name I cannot remember, say it's www.nomorespam.com.  If you go to the URL, you define any (long) character string, say  "my_new_address", then if someone sends an e-mail to "my_new_address@nomorespam.com", you can read the email simply by entering the above string "my_new_address" on the website URL.  So you can create very easily one-time e-mail address you may use for registering on some websites and downloading demos without revealing your true e-mail.

Can anyone help me find this website again !  Thanks.

Update : I just found it again, using "one time email" on google...  It's http://www.mailinator.com/

Merleone: I'm not sure if you know, but you can open the "my_new_address" account by going to http://my_new_address.mailinator.com ;)
I use it all the time, but with 'bah', it's easier to write :P
