I’ve just found out about spam.la – a website set up by Dreamhost that allows you to use a temporary “@spam.la” email address for anything you like.

So next time you want to download some trial software, or need to submit a valid email address for something, and don’t fancy having a sweepstake about how long it is before your email address is sold to spammers, try it out.

But do bear in mind that all emails sent to any spam.la address are publicly viewable on the front page of the website. You can choose any address you like, e.g. foobar@spam.la, and then use the website to filter them for you.

Handy.
