Guide Review - WILL SELF-DESTRUCT - Anonymous Self-Destructing Email Service
In WILL SELF-DESTRUCT, you have but to enter the recipient's email address, a subject (which will not self-destruct!) and your message. Specify how often or how long (either in seconds — for a single view — or in days) the message can be viewed and click "SEND MESSAGE".
You can add your name and email address or stay anonymous. Do keep in mind that WILL SELF-DESTRUCT, though very good, does not offer absolute anonymity. Records may connect the recipient and the message you sent to the computer you used to send it.
Unfortunately, WILL SELF-DESTRUCT leaves little for you to do or see after a message has been delivered. Neither can you manually expire or delete a WILL SELF-DESTRUCT message nor get notified when it was opened (or even by whom).
It's also a pity that the secure HTTPS interface did not work. This would encrypt the message as you type it into the web form. (Via the normal route, that transfer can be intercepted and stored in spite of the message at WILL SELF-DESTRUCT being destructed.)
It would be nice, perhaps, for WILL SELF-DESTRUCT to support sending of images or files. The simple interface makes for very easy mailing of anonymous and self-destructing emails, though.
