there is a tendency among web sites to ask for your e-mail in order to track you down somehow or keep statistics of their own. For example, want to download something? give us your e-mail! This doesn't seem so bad at first but wait a minute! Giving away your address lets them know where they can reach you. And unfortunately a great deal of them takes advantage of that. For starters they decide to subscribe you to their mailing list, sending your their daily or weekly newsletter. Others sell your address to marketing firms which in turn use it to promote their customers' products.
In the end you end up with a dozen or so e-mails a day in your Inbox that you don't care and never asked for. What can you do?
I came across two website which can help you and escape from such situation.
- www.dodgeit.com This website gives you every email adress without saying you it is used by someone. When you are asked for your e-mail, give a random firstname.lastname@example.org. No registration required! After that, visit dodgeit.com and check your e-mail (still without any registration or password). you just have to search it for abc or your expected email content.
- www.10minutemail.com you will be given a temporary e-mail address. Any e-mails sent to that address will show up automatically on the web page. You can read them, click on links, and even reply to them. The e-mail address will expire after 10 minutes.
- Dodgeit will give u email ID with email ID of your choice and will be there on the server for 7 days and by searching anyone can see the information in the mail
- 10minutemail gives you a unique email ID but it will be deleted in 10 minutes.
Enjoy. Happy Spam free mail now on.
Update : Other email sites I like from normal Yahoo or Gmail
it gives you everything you need in a fresh, simple package, including an instant messenger that lets you chat with your buddies from any network, powerful e-mail, contacts & calendar, customized news, rss, minis, file storage, sharing & finally some fun games when you just want to relax.
