The Usual Tech Ramblings

Disposable Mail

We all really hate spam, and sometimes to the point of wanting to give up on email altogether, and just tell your friends to use a phone, or paper. Christopher Null at Yahoo Tech posts about a site called “10 Minute Mail”. Pretty handy. There are other options too, such as using the + sign, and appending a unique identifier, for example user+spammy@gmail.com. Not sure how many services support it, but I know that GMail does, as does any server running postfix, and sendmail if I remember correctly. You can easily use the + as a separator to filter mail.
