Besides the primary use which is mailing emails are widely used as an identity to access various web services. To register or sign up for networking sites, forums, for downloading software you use your email ids, hmm which are enough to fill tons of spams in your inbox. So should you give your original email id? Let's seek for an alternate "Melt Mail". Melt creates a temporary email address and forwards emails to your original one for the specified time period. Know how Melt Mail can make your virtual life easier.


As I said earlier for posting a question to any forum, for promotional offers, for activation links etc you register your email id. The work finishes just after that. But the unnecessary newsletters and annoying notifications have no end. This is also considered as spam.

Recently I found a cool service - Temporary Email Forwarding from MeltMail. Meltmail provides you with a temporary email id which lasts for a maximum of 24 hours or as specified in the option. In this time period, you can receive all emails sent to it in your original email account. That's enough to complete tasks like activation of signups etc. When the time span of 24 hrs or as specified finishes, it reaches the melting point. Then your temporary meltmail melts and your registered email id (original) is removed from their database. The emails further sent to temp email address is deleted.

Access Meltmail



Go to Melt Mail website and select the time span or melting point, this varies from 3 hours to 6 hours. Now type your original email address in the form, this is where your forwarded emails would go. Meltmail will randomly generate an email id. I tested this service for a dozen of sign-ups during last month. I faced no problem yet.




Web & App



Access meltmail at www.MeltMail.com
or Download Melt Mail app for iPhone and iPod Touch [link]



So guys what do you think about it? Can it really minimize spams? What according to you are the other ways MeltMail is going to help? I know you have something to say.
