Sharing the email address publicly is now a big problem as your inbox can be junked by spam messages. The temporary email address could help you in this case.
There are quite numbers of services that provides temporary email address or disposable email addresses. 10 minutes mail, GuerrillaMail, Dead Address are some services that provides temporary addresses. But every one has some limitations.
For instance, all the email addresses provided by those services are single way i.e you can only receive mail but cannot send mail using that address. The addresses are auto-destroying, so you have to have a new one after a certain time.
Hotmail can solve your problem and generates temporary email addresses without the limitations. Also Hotmail is reliable comparing the other services. So if you want to check out such a reliable temporary email service without the limitations, login to your old Hotmail account from mail.live.com.
This temporary email address is nothing but a Windows Live Hotmail alias. Microsoft has added this feature recently to Hotmail. You can create the aliases for your main email address and manage them all through the same inbox. Reade more.
The implementation of aliases in Hotmail is quite impressive. All the incoming mails in the aliases are stored in a separate folder out side your inbox so that you can delete them in bulk if you get so many spam messages.
Hotmail allows you to associate upto 5 aliases for one email address.
The technical part of the creation of an alias in Hotmail is nothing but same as you create a new Gmail account and forward that to your main email inbox. But those who are not a technical savvy, Hotmail’s service stands alone at the top. Here is the video tutorial.
Note: The email alias is also available in Google apps accounts but not in Gmail.
