Though it won't win any design awards, this free tool effectively generates e-mail addresses to avoid spam cluttering your personal in-box.
Temporary Inbox Firefox Toolbar places a drab-looking toolbar on your browser window that sports a few equally drab buttons. Still, the toolbar performs exactly as promised. A very informative FAQ takes the place of a Help menu. You have the option of creating your own name to use with temporaryinbox.com as your domain, or you can choose the option to create completely random e-mail addresses. Either way, a simple click of a button on the toolbar lets you check the in-box on the publisher's Web site to weed through spam mail. We especially liked the forward e-mail option that still lets us register with an e-mail alias, but the e-mails are automatically forwarded to our personal in-box.
Temporary Inbox Firefox Toolbar generated e-mail addresses very quickly for us and we were able to retrieve any e-mails sent to us both through the Web site's in-box and our own mail client without any problems. This is a great toolbar for those looking to prevent spam build-up in their in-box.
This extension generates random disposable e-mail addresses. You can use these email addresses for registration in forums, adult sites or wherever. The email addresses don't require registration. This is an easy way to avoid spam, because the spammer will never get your private email address, only the temporaryinbox.com email address. And there the emails will be deleted after 6 hours. Version 2.0.1 is a bug fixing release.
