Most sites like newspapers, magazines, online forums, etc. demands providing your email address even though you are hesitant to give them because you suspect that you will be bombarded with unwanted emails. You can easily manage these unwanted emails if you can create disposable email addresses.

You can also choose to automatically delete such emails.

In this article, we will see how we can create and manage a disposable email address in Gmail.
