    Not sure if this helps anyone, but thought it was an interesting thing!

    As most people know, I write bots here and there and the biggest pain in the ass is creating email addresses to signup with. I used to use the temp email providers like mailinator to get that sorted, but quite a few places have caught on and have banned email addresses using these sites.

    However, tried something this morning that worked and has made it all so easy again.

    If you have some spare domains and access to DNS records then you are sorted.

    I tested this about 10 minutes ago and it worked a treat.

    If you create a CNAME record from your domain (eg: mydomain.com) to mailinator.com, you can then send email to whateveryouwant@mydomain.com and it will appear on mailinator within seconds.

    To all the sites you signup with using your domain setup as above the site will think its a genuine email address and not a dodgy temp email service, you get quick and easy email addresses!

    Anyone have any problems, give me a shout. If it makes a difference I am using Namecheap for my domains. Now off to test it with a few extra temp email providers to see what happens!

    Bonza :)

    I thought that to start with, but no - CNAME definitely works :)

    Yup, another way of doing it....I was just bored so had a play. Looks like its only Mailinator that lets this work - tested a few others and nothing yet!
