Disposable email

So, Yahoo has announced disposable email addresses — addresses that you can use for a single purpose, but aren’t really linked to your main email account. It is a decent solution to one part of the spam problem, that of email addresses being sold. That said, it is going to make finding an unused Yahoo email addresses even more difficult: I tried to obtain four different obscure letter/number addresses this morning to use as the “root” of my new disposable email address at Yahoo. All four were taken.
