No you cannot! We have now introduced technology to identify bots, which will be permanently banned upon detection.


What does "Abuse detected" mean?

We have introduced rate-limiting on our website which limits the number of addresses you can create or check within a period of time. We do not disclose these limits, but for the vast majority of people these limits are generous enough. If you see this error, you are exceeding the reasonable usage of our service, please come back after 24 hours and try again. These abuse errors are logged, and if you continue to abuse the service, you will be permanently banned.


Can anyone read my emails?

Because there is no registration process, multiple people can use the same email address. We strongly recommend using the random button when creating an email address. By using a random address, this will create you a 9 character email address which has well over 5 trillion email address combinations per domain. The chance of getting one already in use is extremely slim!


Do you filter spam emails?

No, all emails received will be shown in your inbox. This way, no emails will ever go missing.
