Get a Temporary Email Account Instead of Disposable Email Address

New web services are launched almost every hour that require you to register with a valid email address before you can play with the service. Same goes with discussion boards and internet forums - they will ask your email before letting you in.

And each time you share your personal email address with a not-so-popular website, you run the risk of getting more spam.

Then came disposable email address services like SpamBox or Mailexpire, that let you create temporary email address which expire after a given time. These service forward all mails to your primary email inbox until the temporary email account expires.

Disposable Email Address to Stop Spam
A more useful player in the game is which actually provides a disposable email account and not just a use-n-throw email address.

With 10 Minute Mail, you get a temporary e-mail address. Any e-mails sent to this disposable address will show up automatically on the temporary web page that's visible only to you.

You can read new emails send to the disposable address and even reply to the messages using your new address. Read message are indicated with a tick. And everything expires after 10 minutes or more.

This is much safer since you no longer have to share your personal email with anyone, not even the disposable email service.

How to Download Contacts from Facebook To Outlook Address Book

Facebook users are not too pleased with the "walled garden" approach of Facebook. The reason is simple - while you can easily import your Outlook address book and GMail contacts into Facebook, the reverse path is closed. There's no "official" way to export your Facebook friends email addresses or contact phone numbers out as a CSV file so that you can sync the contacts data with Outlook, GMail or your BlackBerry. Some third-party Facebook hacks like "Facebook Sync" (for Mac) and "Facebook Downloader" (for Windows) did allow you to download your Facebook friends' names, emails, mobile phone number and profile photo to the desktop but they were quickly removed for violation of Facebook Terms of Use.
