A Disposable Address is a randomly generated address, completely independent of a user’s current email address. This address acts as a timed alias, forwarding mail to the designated folder for however long specified. When the time limit has been reached, the address is no longer valid and mail will not reach the mailbox. This is useful when you only need a temporary sign up or don’t want to give out your email address and possibly get inundated with spam messages.
