    "Icognito Mail does the job, but the site for it is very bare bones. And it is very slow. It is free, and it works, so I shouldn't complain much. It looks like a pet project of a person nice enough to help others out with their expertise. If you are ever in need of a disposable email, this one is good to check out."

    "Back in the day when you used to purchase a domain name from Godaddy they would give you a nice cache of goodies. One of the best was the free Email account to go with your domain. Sadly thats no longer the case. I did however go looking for a way to use my domain as my email and I found EmailFake. Seems cool nice animation and an easy to use layout. I dipped my toe in and found that i could use my own domain to get emails by routing my dns from my domain over to EmailFake. As i looked around it started to worry me with the lack of documentation. Or even a copy write on the page. So for now i am testing out the Email address generator and its working very well as a quick fill in when not wanting to sign up for things with my main address."

    "This service is awesome. I wish I had known about it a long time ago…before I had given out my email to so many places that now just send me SPAM on a weekly basis that I can’t seem to get rid of. It’s very easy to use and straightforward. You have 48-hour access in case you need to verify something, and that’s the real benefit over just making up some fake email address. "
