GuerrillaMail.com never let me down Used it very frequently in the past. Only the option to actually send mail from that temporary email address seems to be struggling to function, but if you just want to receive mail they're a very safe choice.

Are those temporary email providers very safe? Could imagine there are some data issues. Do you have any experience with that?

They're not intended to be used for serious communication IMO. If you need to sign up to a website you don't trust your real email address with, if you need to pass an email address to someone for a once-off email and you prefer to not give your real address, or if you need to send a message and you don't have your laptop with prefered mail client with you, ... then a temporary mail address can be useful. But it's a given you're not going to use it for seriously important communications.

I have good experiences with GuerillaMail but I only used it for the above purposes.

Isn't that considered a "serious communication"?
Anyways I got your point. Thanks for your reply.

Good call. If it's a really serious email I would probably abstain from using a temporary email address. It can come in handy if you need to send an email to a friend and haven't got your prefered mail client with you, if the email is relatively "innocent" (eg "call me if you fancy a drink tonight").

The lifetime of a Guerillamail address is 1 hour.

I was going to ask about uses for temporary email addresses, you pretty much cover them. Some are yeah, I knew that duh... others good idea. I think it will especially more important when I get my own domain. I will be a bit more selective on who gets that address. I use gmail as a dump for those things now.

In that email I'd include "I mail you from a temporary address, so don't respond here, but..." followed by the actual message. As I said, it was fine for brief messages such as "meet me at 8PM in the pub" but obviously not for any serious stuff.

Also, while i've also used GuerillaMail to sign up with to forums etc, it should be noted it's important to make sure to remember the password. Because obviously the "forgot password" recovery link won't function if the email address isn't existing anymore. Unless you count on just re-"registering" with GuerillaMail but since you never know the stability and how long such services will survive, better not rely on that plan. For a forum I'm planning to use for long time and for serious dialogues, I'd not use a temporary email address.
An alternative, when you don't want the forum owners to somehow find out your real email address, could be to create an email forwarding address. That way you hide your actual mail address, but you're also able to recover your password should you ever forget it. Maybe a better option even than a temporary mail address.
