Anonymous and Disposable Email Addresses
Oct 12th, 2006 at 11:46am
 
Here’s a new and interesting product:

Quote:
Many Web sites require an email address to access information, purchase merchandise, or share your opinions. However, your email address is one of the easiest ways for spammers and online criminals to tie back to your personal information. Protect your personal email address and your identity with Anonymizer® Nyms™.

Now you can take control of spam with disposable, anonymous email addresses. Anonymizer Nyms allows you to create disposable email addresses for all of your online activities, while still accessing all your email in one place. Now you don't have to worry about providing your email address to a Web site and opening yourself up to spam.

If you need to provide your email address to a site that you suspect might share or sell it, you can provide them with a Nyms email instead. Nyms accounts are easy to setup and manage. And since you can create up to 1,000 disposable addresses, you can create a unique Nyms email for every Web site you visit.

For example, let's say that you want to purchase something from Widgets.com but you are concerned that they may share your email address and flood your inbox with spam. You can create a custom Nym, such as widgets@nyms.net or have Anonymizer generate a random Nym for you. When Widgets.com (or anyone else) sends an email to that Nyms address, it will automatically be re-routed to your personal email address.

If Widgets.com shares or sells this disposable email address and you begin receiving spam, you can simply deactivate widgets@nyms.net without affecting your primary email address or any of your other disposable addresses.

You can also use your Nyms email addresses to send communications back to these Web sites. So if you have a question about your Widgets.com order, you can maintain your privacy by using the widgets@nyms.net email address that you created for this site.

Anyone aware of other similar solutions?

I didn’t realize that “disposable email addresses” is an industry unto itself.  For additional options, see:
