Mailinator: Postal Service-style fast-food

Any more or less active Internet user is certainly faced with a situation where to register at the forum or any other interesting resource required to indicate a valid address e-mail, which will be sent to the password and/or activates login link. But few people in such a situation indicates his normal address - wants to remain anonymous, and even spam, no one cancels ... You can, of course, free to register box at one of the many mail servers on the Net. However, not all do: someone simply laziness, someone reluctant to remember the new combination ID/password or waste time, factory address, you want to get just one letter.

Especially for such situations and set up web-service This is a very peculiar mail server, requires no registration - at all! Moreover, the user Mailinator 'but is not required to torture, pridumyvaya unallocated name for their mail. Any address @, which can only come, already exists.

Of course, the framers of the service do not engage in leisure "vbivaniem" in the database trillion alphanumeric combinations. Once referred to a letter addressed to come, Mailinator automatically creates the appropriate account in its mailing database. Accordingly, when registering at the forum site or can simply indicate any visitor to the head address ending in "". However, a pair of restrictions are there. Name mailbox is limited to 25 characters, but also it must be valid email address. This means that to use any combination like "127 @ valentin @" can not be. That's all, no other restrictions.

To check e-mail, enough to get into the site and enter the name of the mailbox in the box "Check your inbox!", Then click the "Go!". Password not required - he was not provided. Of course, in this case, check your e-mail sent to the box-type could anyone. Yes service and is not intended to obtain letters of important information. As stated on the site of service, "the official privacy policy Mailinator - complete lack of confidentiality."

However, if you still want to preserve their correspondence secret from curious strangers, enough to choose the name of the type 3328tygslo0lj5h5a. According to the developers of service, potentially there is some "830 trillion trillion trillion" different e-mail-addresses Mailinator. Guess searched agree, will slozhnovato.

Of course, send e-mail with Mailinator 'as possible; could not be independently also delete the mail - a few hours after viewing all messages automatically removed (so do not forget to save copies of correspondence received on your PC). It turns out that the same virtual mailbox can simultaneously use a few people. Largely for this reason that the mailbox at the Mailinator 'e can not contain more than 10 messages simultaneously, and the maximum size of 120 Kb letter restricted. Also not accepted html-letter format, and all attached files "cut". So you from viruses in any event insured.

Do Mailinator 'and a number of other secrets, which over time opened a permanent users. Some of these secrets to provide additional protection for user privacy, others, in contrast, are intended to podstrahovki senders of letters. I now open a few secrets quick and easy checking his mailbox at the Mailinator-f.

To get his code, should pass at Secondly, the mailbox, say, vasia.pupkin @, you can check directly from your browser by typing in the Address direct link type Of course, such a reference could be immediately placed in browser bookmarks or make it a label on the Desktop - who both love. A third option - to check mail via RSS: the reference to rss-tape is present on the page viewing any mailbox in the Mailinator 'f. However, it turned out, most users prefer not utruzhdat themselves alternate routes and checks his mailbox directly to the Mailinator site button "Go!", As has been described above.
