I use http://www.mintemail.com. I was a big fan of mailinator before I discovered mintemail. I think mintemail is the easiest and most user friendly temporary email services. For instance, the temporary email address is automatically copied to your clipboard and you don’t need to press CTRL+C. Also, you don’t need to refresh the page to check if your email has arrived. The webpage title is automatically updated and this is very useful in firefox tabs.

Sneakemail.com is also a very good one I have used for a while. I like this one because the emails do look very random and allows some neat rules when you are finished with the address.
Also, it is not as mainstream so not blocked by some providers who only want the real email address.

http://www.selfdestructingmail.com

Provides temporary / disposable / self destructing email addresses that are valid for 30 minutes.

You can view received emails on the webpage or subscribe to an RSS feed which delivers all mail received to that address while it’s valid.

You can reply to e-mails as well.

This is ideal for signing up to forums or other online services which require valid email addresses for activation emails without worrying about having your real email address exposed to spammers.

A friend refered me to a new site ( http://www.soodonims.com ) that I am very happy with.
It allows unlimitted emails, they can be expired by time or quantity. You can also see who (which domain) is sending the emails to you and you ca selectively turnoff the misbehavers. It has a nice interface and gives you lots of infoata glance.
It has a nice interface and easyto you. I used to use Spam Gourmet but it was very confusing.

spammed to death July 30, 2008 at 6:45 am

Thanks for the word Paul. I have been confused by this selection process for a while, guess you have to pick one sometime!

Cool site (soodonims), I am trying it out. Now I WANT to find someone to spam me after I register. Anyone know any sites that will for sure? Or ones who sell your names?

I love living on the edge :)

Apparently the way soodonims works (and others), is that they just ignore spam mail based on your instructions. We should start a campaign advertising spammer sites, have people signup with disposable aliases, and then deactvate them. That way they waste their bandwidth and never know it.

YOPmail is the best in my opinion . it is free, reliable and multilingual service.

I have been using mailnator and other leading services for a while. They have downtimes, and unlike yopmail delete the mails in few hours. But yopmail keeps the messages for 5 days.

YOPmail stands out is being the most neat, quick, and user-friendly disaposable service around. Have used it for sometime now , it has never disappointed me. There si no registration required, and it can be used on the fly.

It has some pretty creative options like widgets, and RSS feeds. furthermore, it is possible to switch between html and text view and to display all email headers.

Also, one can choose his own username while composing a mail. There are a few domain names a user can choose from. Email aliases, and random email generator is also available.

Serves all my purpose conveniently ;)
