Disposable e-mail addresses are a randomly generated string of characters that are used to create a unique alternate e-mail address:

  • e7cdd5980fe842e9bf3031e9f3f5a42f@tuta.io
  • 2ad3fdb18d1842d5826824c78b9338ae@tuta.io

The difference between regular e-mail aliases and disposable ones is that the latter are intended to be temporary, for instance, you can use them for a short-term purpose before deleting the address to prevent your real address from being sold and added to Spam lists.

Additionally, a description field (or something similar), along with the e-mail address itself is a nice-to-have in order to associate/know the service or Web site in question.

Disposable e-mail addresses are just for receiving e-mail – they should not be used to send e-mails.

It's important to emphasize that this is completely different from the usual disposable e-mail address services one can find out there.

@x80486 the idea to only use them for receiving is great IMO, thanks for the proposal
