Disposable email address

Protecting yourself against spammers and harvesters by getting a disposable e-mail address. Disposable email address services promise to eliminate spam while leaving good mail untouched.Every time you give out your e-mail address, you take a risk that your address will get on spammers' lists and you'll be bombarded with junk mail. Keeping harvesters from getting your address is important, but you also need to protect any addresses you enter into forms at Web sites.

When you sign up for something on the Web with a disposable email address, you don't use your real email address but an alias of it. Every alias is created specifically for a site or mailing list, and the disposable email address becomes associated with it. Since every disposable email address is given only to one site and associated with it, the source of spam can be identified easily.

E-Mail Icon Generator
The e-mail icons produced by the E-Mail Icon Generator are intended for use as a replacement for your textual e-mail address (eg. "") wherever you might normally put an e-mail address that could appear publicly, for example as a signature on a public forum, on your personal web page or "blog".

By showing your e-mail address in an image form, rather than text, spammers' e-mail harvesting programs are unable to see it, and so will not be able to add your e-mail address to their mailing lists.

The e-mail icons are not however intended to be used as a replacement for your e-mail address in your e-mail client, or on websites which require an e-mail address for signing up. (Please note that if you make the icon clickable using a "mailto:" link, or use your e-mail address in the icon's alt-text, your e-mail address will be visible to address collecting robots!)
