If you’re a regular here, then you know that I encourage everyone to have more than one e-mail address…
- One just for close friends and family (…none of those “friends” who like to send many-times-forwarded emails though).
- And another one for everything else (…including online registration forms, routine sign-up matters, and to give to friends who send a lot of “junk”).
Now, there’s a website that makes it a cinch to create a temporary e-mail address that’s good only for a few hours!
Best part: THERE’S NO REGISTRATION. And, It’s completely anonymous.
Other great part: It’s active long enough for you to receive a “confirmation” email that many sign-up programs have.
I haven’t seen another product like it. And like I said… It’s quick. It’s easy. It’s great for registering for free samples & products like this.
It’s the ultimate in one-time-use email accounts!
It’s called Jetable.
You enter how long you’d like to use this temporary e-mail account (one hour, one day, one week or one month). Then type in your real e-mail address. For that length of time, any e-mails sent to the disposable email address automatically get forwarded to to your “real” email address.
The biggest benefit of using a disposable email address is you don’t have to give out your real email address to websites and people you don’t know (or trust) — so you don’t care if they send you SPAM — you won’t be receiving any of it.

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
