3. Feeds Without Programming > 3.1. From Email

From Email

You can use a feed to display all your announcement-only mailing lists; you can also use it as a disposable email address when you register with web sites and the like. This frees your inbox and protects your real email address from being sold to spammers.

There are two services that do this, and both are very reliable: MailBucket (http://www.mailbucket.org/) and Dodgeit (http://www.dodgeit.com/).

Both operate in the same way. You send mail to xxx@mailbucket.org or xxx@dodgeit.com, where xxx is your own chosen identity. There’s no sign up, so you need to check that your chosen identity isn’t already taken. This highlights one issue: your mail isn’t private, so don’t use it for things you don’t want others to see. (You could use an incredibly unguessable identity to make such risks very unlikely.)
