If you use Thunderbird you can create a fake email address very easily.

1.Click on Create new account.
2. Input your name ( eg.Hugh Jambton), fake email address (adhere to the name@name.com/co/org protocol) and password, then click continue.
3. Allow Thunderbird to go through the motions of looking up the account details, which it will tell you it has failed to do.
4. Click on manual setup then cancel that when the next screen appears.

Hey presto!

You can use your primary account to send the email.

Okay, I know there are those of you out there who will point out that the mail serverdetails are held in the message source, but spammers use the email address, not the source when harvesting email addresses for spam.


I've been using mailinator.com for years to do the same

The are two problems with this trick:
Firstly - depending on your outgoing mail server, it might reject messages with a sender address not in it's domain.

Secondly, sometimes you need to click on verification emails before binning an email account.

What's the benefit of this over creating a permanent junk email address on Gmail or similar?

You would be limited to having just one duplicate account. This way you obtain a new email address every time you visit the website. Also, you often get benefits for subscribing to emails (e.g free food at Yates's hotukdeals.com/dea…723 ). You can usually only subscribe once to theses email but often get spam from them forever.

Mailinator works great for me - can choose different domains too, like @binkmail or @suremail.com.

Fake email addresses are also great if you are trying to perform the Dropbox Referral trick... ;-)

One duplicate account? With Gmail?

If you use gmail just do the + trick -eg. If you are myname@gmail.com just use myname+xxx@gmail.com - anything in place of that xxx will do and it will still reach you. Then if it gets overly spammed, just add a rule to delete them and start another!

never had either of those issues...I expect the naysayers, there are always those

Well, as far as I know of fake email generators they are used by people to spam others....

Please explain how you send an email using this generator?

Hacking tools on HUKD lol I never thought I would see the day, I used to send my mate letters from Bill Gates offering him a job lol, It used to pass a few mins when I was bored.

Edit: just realised this generates accounts and doesn't spoof the address still a hack tool though lol

10minutemail.com
Simple, quick & flawless

personally I use any email as long as it ends. .com like crapdriver@work.com for ratting at a companys drivers

I'd say there are different levels of "fake" email.

Level 0: just need to enter something that it thinks is valid (use an "@example.com" if possible, or an @127.0.0.1 if it accepts it)
Level 1: to receive only (most temporaries are this) - depending on how long it's likely to be, the expiry times of some may be a problem.
Level 2: send and receive - so far, the only one I can recall that you can easily send from is spamgourmet .
Also, spamgourmet is a secure (well as any other service) redirector that you can set to create addresses valid for a few mails before self destruct, or tie a redirect to a single sender that you don't trust not to put it on more lists - even if they sucker you into accepting stuff "from our partners".
