I'll give extracts.
Mailinator is fundamentally quite different from other services. Other
services let you "own" email addresses. Not here - at Mailinator all
email addresses are owned by everyone. All email is public. Also,
email services like Gmail or Yahoo allow you to actually send email -
Mailinator is "receive-only".
You cannot send email from Mailinator.
After several hours, all email is auto-deleted. There is no real
Mailinator provides less, but requires no sign-up.
So Mailinator solves the Spam problem?
Heck no. If it solved the spam problem it would probably be called
IBMinator or MICROSOFTinator or something even catchier cuz we would
have sold it and we'd be zillionaires off pursuing our real dream of
helping nice people like Dr. Bahutu of Nigeria who keeps emailing us
asking for our help transferring some funds.
Um... if there is no password, can't someone else get my email?
Well to start - it's not your email. All email in the Mailinator
system is "public domain". Anyone can read it if they know where to
look. You can choose odd-names to avoid heavily used inboxes.
This sounds pretty insecure, what if I want to send important emails
with sensitive super-secret information in them to Mailinator?
Then you are a stupid-head. That isn't what this is for.
The official policy is something like:
Expect that any email you send or have sent here can and will be
viewed by anyone. Mailinator/ManyBrain does not ask for or require any
of your personal information. Simply put, anyone can read anyone
else's email here. By design, there is simply no way to insure only
you have access to any given email.
Privacy is a serious issue, and we want to be clear. The inherent
design of how Mailinator works precludes any possibility of
information sent here being private to any user.
We got it all! Well, not all, but lots of great features.
