Why would I use Minute Mailbox?
The most common reason to use a temporary or disposable e-mail service like MinuteMailbox is if you are forced to give an e-mail address to a website you don't fully trust. Many websites force you to register to see their content. Many of those websites will then either send you SPAM for years or, even worse, sell your e-mail address to large-scale SPAM operations. MinuteMailbox allows you to easily give an e-mail address that won't exist in 24 hours, so there's no risk of SPAM. If the website makes you verify the e-mail address by sending you a link to your e-mail that you have to click, then you can read the e-mail right here on www.MinuteMailbox.com and click on the link. You can also reply to e-mail, as some sites require a reply. You can forward the e-mail to your account if there's some information you need to save.
How do I use Minute Mailbox?
- When you need an e-mail address to fill out an online form or registration, open another window or tab and go to https://www.minutemailbox.com/mailbox.
- The e-mail address you see, or you generate an e-mail ID on the fly on the page, is yours. You are the only person who can see that address.
- You can copy it from the window or click on the icon that looks like two sheets of paper, automatically copying the e-mail address to your clipboard. DO NOT CLOSE the minutemailbox.com window.
- Then paste the e-mail address into the website you needed it for, complete the registration/form/whatever you need to add it for further usage.
- If the site sends you an e-mail, it should show up on the minutemailbox.com page, under the messages section. It may take a couple of minutes to arrive.
- Once you see it there, click on it, and you can read the e-mail. Then you can click on any links or get any information you need.
- When you are done, close the minutemailbox.com window, or wait for its 24 hours expiring to execute the e-mail(s) deletion. That's it.
