HOW TO CREATE A ‘DISPOSABLE’ MAIL ID

You might have come across websites that let you download a PDF for free, or register with them, or lets you check their content for free – as long as you give your email address. In this age of spam, no one would blame you for getting wary of giving out your email address: after all, the last thing you want is MORE spam in your Inbox. So what do you do? Get a disposable email address.

  1. Go to www.maildrop.cc
  2. Fill the form, and select an email i-d you fancy – say iamcheck1@maildrop.cc
  3. The email id is created, and you are taken to the Inbox
  4. Now go to the website that wanted your email id, fill in this one, come back and check the message so that you can carry on Remember, Maildrop.cc mailboxes can be seen by anyone who has the mail id, so don’t use this for your primary mail. Also remember that the mailbox is limited to 100kb, so it won’t accept attachments. But yes, now you can avoid giving your real email id when you want to move around on the internet.
