Disposable Email IDs




DISPOSABLE TEMP EMAIL IDWe generally require temporary or disposable email ID for downloading some software, or signing up at some website or filling some form, as we do not want to share our real email ID to avoid SPAM. Our primary email providers like google, outlook etc do not provide any provision for on the fly email ID creation which can be disposed when not in use. So if you are also looking for disposable email IDs for temporary or occasional requirement where you can access emails in inbox for a day or two only, here are the options below. They come in various flavors like some delete their inbox emails every day but the email ID lives long, some dispose both in 48 hours, some come with a feature to forward or reply to the email, others just read the inbox. Choose a flavor which suits your taste.

Gmail: How to get a Gmail Temporary Email ID

temporary gmail Id how to create

Gmail does not provide for creation of any disposable or temporary email ID which can be associated with your main gmail inbox for on the fly use. But there are two ways which help you to create temporary looking email ID associated with your real Gmail ID inbox for immediate use. But remember these IDs are not actually created but are virtual camouflage of your mail ID, so they will keep receiving emails in future also, only with a difference that they can be filtered creating inbox rules to reach SPAM box etc.

Adding + sign after actual email prefix

For example if you are signing up with social media or any other temporary web requirement you can create temporary looking email ID like shown below and use it on the fly. All the emails sent to such IDs would be safely delivered to your gmail.com inbox, and would also be tagged with that specific name combination. You can enjoy your perfect combination after [email protected]

[email protected] | [email protected]

The incoming emails can be filtered based on the rule to find emails for the above combination and deleted. In place of our combinations you can create as many combinations in the same way as you want using your actual ID as prefix + some temporary name.

Using googlemail.com as mail Domain

All the emails sent to googlemail.com domain are ultimately received by the gmail.com inbox. If you do not want to share your gmail ID at some automated systems which require signup etc, you may use the following example under googlemail.com These are particularly useful when you want to use a filter and create rules for inbox based on them, as they will also keep receiving emails in future, as they are associated to your actual email ID and cannot be dispensed with or blocked.

[email protected]

Any email sent to the above email ID would obviously be received in your gmail.com inbox and you can filter all of them and delete or archive when not required.



Has a nice colorful interface, a fresh look. Email ID remains active forever. Only emails are deleted automatically every 1 days. You can get custom email ID also of your choice if available or create a random one. Also multiple email ID can be created and associated to same inbox.

How NameAPI detects them

DEA is a cat-and-mouse game. Besides the old well known domains that everyone who does block blocks, there are new domains appearing daily. Some from existing providers that swap out the domain in use to avoid the block, others from completely new providers.

Our DEA Detector is part of a larger software to classify and validate email addresses. (This software is not available as an API to the general public.)

Not only do we detect DEA, but instead classify the domain names into freemail, ISP, organization, etc. A misclassification of a popular domain like yahoo cannot happen. In a log analysis from 2015, 92% of all email addresses could be classified, out of which 0.265% were disposables.
