Guide Review - GishPuppy - Disposable Email Service
Using a GishPuppy bookmarklet or a browser add-on (available for Internet Explorer and Firefox), it is easy to set up disposable email addresses whenever you need them. GishPuppy even takes note of the web site you created an alias for, conveniently offering you the existing address when you visit a site again later.
Addresses created through GishPuppy normally forward all mail to your real email address, but you can disable that at any time (should the alias fall into spammers' hands) or set aliases to expire automatically.
With all this simplicity and usability, it is unfortunate that GishPuppy does not offer address masking in replies. If you receive an email through a GishPuppy alias and you reply, your real email address is revealed to the sender (if you do not manually set the From: line to the correct GishPuppy alias, which is a pain to do).
Similarly, GishPuppy cannot automatically create an alias if you mail somebody for the first time, and you cannot use your own domain with GishPuppy.
