Create, use, edit, or delete temporary email addresses in Yahoo Mail

A temporary email address is a disposable email address that allows you to receive and send emails without disclosing your permanent email address and can be used to sign up for websites or newsletters that you don't trust. If one of these addresses gets too much spam, for example, simply delete the address. They consist of 2 parts, a "nickname" and a "keyword" (nickname-keyword@yahoo.com).

 This feature is available to Yahoo Mail Plus subscribers and users with existing nickname and temporary email addresses. Yahoo Mail Plus isn't available in all locales. If the option isn't listed in your account, it's not available at this time.
