Guerrilla Mail...simply brilliant!

UPDATE#1: 01June2012 - Guerillamail is currently down...will keep you posted. Bummer.
UPDATE#2: 04June2012 - Guerillamail is back in operation. Nice.

I went to download a free giveaway ebook today and (as usual) they wanted my email address and details before they sent me the link to the ebook file.
Having been down this road before I knew that they'd only want to bother me by email about other things I "might like to purchase".
Away from me you evil-doers! I don't want to be harassed by you (just want the free book) so I utilised this...

Guerrilla Mail
gives you a disposable email address which lasts for 60 minutes. There is no need to register, simply visit Guerrilla Mail and a random address will be set. You can also choose your own address.
You can give your email address to whoever you do not trust. You can view the email on Guerrilla Mail, click on any confirmation link, then delete it. Any future spam sent to the disposable email will be zapped by Guerrilla Mail, never reaching your mail box, keeping your mail box safe and clean.

I've used it a few times now and reckon it's one of the best things since sliced bread.
