When you don’t want to give out your email address

Sometimes a website will require that you to enter your email address to register.  You don’t REALLY want to give it to them as you know that you will be sent their “newsletter”, and you will never read that.  Or it is website that you just want to get one file or document from and the chances of you returning is very slim…

What do you do to keep your email address “private” and “spam free” as possible?

You create a Trashmail email address!

How it works:

Create a new email address on trashmail.net. All mails to this address will be forwarded to your real email address for a number of times you can set up on the following form. When the limit is reached, the Trashmail.net email address will be automatically deleted. All following mails (like spam, newsletter, etc) will be rejected at Trashmail.net.

The free service allows you to forward up to 10 emails for the period of 1 month to your real email address.  After that the emails will bounce back to the sender as undelivered and you will no longer be bothered by them.

If you use the paid service it will cost you $14.99 per year.

I only use the free service and have so for the past 4 years without issue.

So if you want to keep your email address “private” and “spam free” head over to https://ssl.trashmail.net today!
