MailDrop Provides a Persistent, No-Thrills Burner Email Accounts
When you make a purchase online, or are providing an email address to someone you don't quite trust, it makes sense to provide a disposable email address. While it's certainly not the only service of its kind, MailDrop is a clean, easy to use service that keeps the junk out of your real inbox.
This persistence comes with some restrictions. For one, the inbox can only hold a maximum of 10 emails at a time, and if it doesn't receive one for 24 hours, all of the messages in the inbox will be deleted. Emails are also limited to 100 kB, and will be stripped of all attachments. Since you don't have to create an account to use MailDrop, your inbox will also be visible to the public without a password, though you can use an alias to make it harder to find. If you're just using the service to test out email newsletters, this isn't a big deal, but just be careful what you keep in there.
MailDrop isn't necessarily better or worse than competing services, but if you appreciate its persistence and total lack of friction, it's worth checking out.
