disposable email

What is a disposable email?

Disposable email is a service that allows a registered user to receive email at a temporary address that expires after a certain time period elapses.

Many online discussion forums, blogs and websites ask visitors to register before they can post comments, view premium content or download white papers. A disposable email account will allow the visitor to sign up and verify his registration without exposing his primary email account to spam.

A disposable email account, which has its own inbox, reply and forward functions, can be contrasted with a disposable email address, which is simply a service that forwards messages to a user's primary email account. Disposable email is also called throw-away email, temporary email or self-destructing email.
