Temporary email addresses

Sometimes, you want to try something out, or you need to confirm a registration at some dingy forum site... If you enter your real email address there, you could start receiving spam on that address, if the address is sold to spammers or placed on the site in plain view of email harvesters.

Jetable is a site that generates a temporary email address with a specified life span. Need a throw-away email address for the next 24 hours? Use Jetable -- it'll forward all mail sent to that address to your real email address, and simply delete it after 24 hours.

There even is an extension for Firefox, so that a temporary email address is only a right-click away!
