I want to introduce you all to a marvellous service that I found on the internet here – a temporary email box/generator so that you can go out and join a forum or post on a message board that demands a working email, but you don’t want them to have your email. So, you make a fake one on Don’tReg, and it’ll last you long enough to get their confirmation email, and get you in, but not long enough for the spam to start flowing in, or, worse yet, give them your email to start spamming.

Wish I’d found this months ago.

Edit; May 17, 2008 seems to have died, it’s currently parked through GoDaddy (Ugh…) and doesn’t appear to be doing anything.  I suggest Mailinator instead, it’s effectively the same thing, though the email address is created when you send mail to it, freeing up the create mailbox portion of the process.
