20 Great Temporary And Disposable Email Sites

    I really enjoyed reading your take on this new way of handling e-mail. I think you should check out OtherInbox, a new email service that fits right in line with what you are discussing.

    With OtherInbox, each user receives their own domain name ( and proceeds to give out personalized addresses to each site or service (, etc.)

    OtherInbox then automatically organizes these addresses, allowing the user to manage their email and, if necessary, block an address that is receiving too much spam.

    It is currently in a private beta, but this URL will give you (and 25 of your readers) a chance to try it out.

    Feel free to try the service out, and we look forward to finding out what you and your readers think.
