Temp email for receiving messages

q: What is the fastest way to receive email to a disposable account?

a: If you have a Google/gmail account, it supports adding a plus sign then a descriptor between your name and the @ sign.  And example would be  yourname +bestbuy @ for example (without spaces).  Gmail will ignore anything after the plus sign and deliver it to your inbox, but you can sort/filter the messages by this custom recipient.

Another alternative, completely protecting all of your email addresses, is a website called Temp Mail  This amazing application will generate a Temporary Email Address and show you the inbox.   This is great for testing email servers and email campaigns.  When you close the site the email goes away.  They also have an iOS app available here -
