Becoming a member of a site or online service that you love is great. Having to submit your email address to a site or online service in order to become a member? Well, that sucks. If you surf the interwebz as often as we do, there’s little doubt that your inbox has seen its share of registration emails and the subsequent spam and mailing list junk that typically follow them. To solve this problem, many of us turn to alternate email addresses, or set up complex email filtering systems Yep, that stuff works, but honestly, who wants to deal with that level of effort for the sake of signing up for a website. Fortunately, Ten Minute Mail has heard our geeky cries of protest, and for answering our whiny call, we’ve made them our Cool Site of the Week.
With Ten Minute Mail, there’s no need to decide on a name for your email account. There’s no request for personal information, or a lengthy registration process. Just navigate Ten Minute Mail, and you’ll find a pre-made throw away email address waiting for you. The address, as the site’s name implies, will last for ten minutes before becoming inactive.
That’s more than enough time to register for a website or online service. Should you need another temporary email address, just refresh the site, and make it happen. Now that’s a one trick pony anyone would want to ride.
Be sure to check back every Friday for another edition of Cool Site of the Week.
