New Yahoo Mail has disposable e-mail addresses (Wonderful for deal registrations!)
Deal DetailsLast Edited by TofuVic September 23, 2016 at 12:28 PM
Yahoo Mail has announced that many of their paid features are now free to regular users. The most enticing for us deal hunters is that all Yahoo Mail users now have disposable e-mails.
You can create temporary email addresses that automatically forward messages to your account. You need to create a base name first, and once that is done, use any email address in the form email@example.com. For example, if you create a base name of is SlickDeals4Life, you can now create a disposable e-mail address of SlickDeals4Lifefirstname.lastname@example.org. When you no longer need the disposable e-mail address, delete it to stop receiving e-mails that are sent to it. You can create as many disposable names as you'd like - I have hundreds.
- Open Yahoo! Mail on your computer in your web browser of choice.
- Click on the settings icon next to your username in the top right corner of the screen, and select Settings, then Security.
- Access Disposable Addresses from this menu.
- Free Yahoo Mail users can now create one extra e-mail address that is linked to their current address. Check out the Settings section for more information.
- POP3 is now available to free users, too, so you can also forward your Yahoo Mail account elsewhere (e.g., to Gmail).
There's a good chance this thread may be downvoted because it is not a true deal, but I figured this may benefit a lot of people, so I have taken a leap of faith and posted it. Also, another user posted Get Your Yahoo! Username Wish List Ready! in the Hot Deals forum a few months ago - which also isn't really a deal post - and the thread was well-received with a score of 90.
Have a great day,
Just checked out details. Its still PITA compared to gmail. The DOTS and PLUS make it easier in gmail. It appears that Yahoo auto gave me a base name (which is different than my real email address) and I have to register/add each disposable email id first before it can be used. BOOO...!!
For added "security", the NSA has access to Yahoo! emails as well! <---the good news is my email is too boring for ME to read
