LowEndBoxTV: Create Your Own Self-Hosted Disposable Webmail with Inbucket

Tags: , , , , , , Date/Time: May 1, 2021 @ 9:14 pm, by raindog308


Services like Mailinator allow anyone to setup disposable webmail accounts for easy filtering of disposable emails. If you are hesitant to give your email to web sites or organizations because you know they’re going to sign you up for mailing lists, this approach allows you an unlimited number of instantly-generated emails to preserve your sanity.

Unfortunately, marketers are wise to Mailinator and many sites now disallow signups with Mailinator.com emails.

However, you can self-host your own Mailinator-like service with an excellent FOSS product called inbucket. In this tutorial, we walk you through setup from start to finish on a freshly-installed Debian VPS.
