    Default Temporary email address

    Yopmail (free)

    Not quite sure where this fits in, but useful all the same. When registering on certain websites, it's often wise to use a different email address to avoid the risk of spam. This site allocates you with an generated email address, pops a cookie in your system, and that's it. No passwords, just cookie recognition. Obviously not for serious emailing!

    edit..forgot to add that there's an extension available for Firefox and IE7. It's included in opera 9.5 in Panels section.
