Yahoo Launches Disposable Email Addresses
from the that-old-technique? dept
Yahoo has jumped on the disposable email address bandwagon. Following the lead of tons of smaller offerings, such as Sneakemail, Yahoo has launched a "premium" service, which will let users create up to 500 "variations" on their email address, which can be used as disposable email addresses for online signups and purchases. It also sounds like they're adding a whitelist option for those who want it. I'm not sure the disposable addresses alone make it worth signing up for - especially since some of the other disposable email solutions out there are free - but, it is good to see them offering a variety of tools for users to defeat spam.
