Temporary Inbox Toolbar - stop giving them a real email addy

review by TF @ TopFreeware, Sept 2006, permalink


From Clif:

My friend TF wrote recently about this great toolbar for the Internet Explorer and Firefox web browsers. It allows you to easily give out temporary email addresses when a website asks you for one. After all, how much spam do you really need? You can usually change to a real email address later if you decide you want to continue to receive them from a web service.


From TF:

You want to download something but the company wants your email address. I'm sure you've come accross it before.


Well now, you can use this service instead. All you do is download the extension, and install it, that's it. If you don't like the toolbar up all the time, just disable it until you need it. Press the random email button to create your temporary inbox and copy and paste into the field. Wait a while then press the check email button.


The rest I'm sure you'll figure out. Currently it comes in versions for IE and Firefox as a toolbar extension. Never get spam again. I love it.


It's easy to use, requires no registration and the temporary email gets automatically deleted after 6 hours, if you can't bother deleting it yourself. What more can you ask for?


Go here to download the Firefox extension or Internet Explorer toolbar. Enjoy!


Note from Clif: Just in case you don't want another toolbar, you don't need one to access the services at Temporary Inbox. Just go there any time you need to foil a potential spammer.
