The spam terminator
is an internet mail service created with the only purpose to protect your "real" email account from spam. You don't need to sign up for the service; the account will be automatically generated when an email arrives for it. So, whenever you are asked to give your email address, but don,Aeot feel comfortable with it, you can make up an email address on the spot (firstname.lastname@example.org) and later you will be able to check on the site if you have received any interesting messages at the ,Aeufake,Aeu address. The messages will be automatically deleted after a few hours.
Um.. if there is no password, can't someone else get my email?
Yup. For this reason, you might want to pick an offhand name. Don't pick "email@example.com", maybe you'd be better off with "boohabunny". In any case, its perfectly possible for anyone to see your email here.
I dare say that the mailinator team obviously underestimates the spammer.
