One of the most difficult things to deal with when using online tools is the need to register for sites. Most of the sites that I use don’t require registration or require you to supply an email. Occasionally, there are some situations that need an email address if only for the registration process. In these situations, I just using a temporary email service such as AirMail to finish the registration process. This allows you to sign up and then get the email to finish the registration process.
- Go to getairmail.com and click on the temporary email button in the middle of the screen.
- You will be taken to you new “Inbox” that refreshes every 10 seconds. Copy your new address by clicking on the clipboard button next to the new address that is located directly below the image of the mailman on the left-hand side of the screen. [NOTE: DO NOT close this browser window! You will need to go there once you have finished the registration process. This site will continue to receive emails, leaving messages in your account, as long as you leave that window open. Closing the window will start the countdown on emptying the account of all messages. Messages are deleted 24 hours after closing the window. You can still access the account after this time and continue using the email address simply by bookmarking the page and returning at a later time.]
- Go to the page that requires your email address for registration and paste that email address into the email spot on the form.
- Once you have finished registering, go to the AirMail window and check your mail. It will continue refreshing the email list every 10 seconds.
- Click on any messages that require you to finish the registration process. If you want to keep the message, you will have to copy and paste the message into something else. You can not email out from AirMail.
- As mentioned earlier, the messages will remain in the account as long as you keep that window open. You can open other windows/tabs and AirMail will notify you with a sound when you receive a message.
- Only you can use this email address if you are using the same browser and computer as when you registered.
- You can also read HTML emails instead of just text based messages.
