A DIFFERENT EMAIL ADDRESS

Tinyurl.com and bit.ly are two places to go to shorten long web site addresses. But at bouncr.com you can shorten your email address.

Choose a new one at bouncr.com and any email sent to that address will pass on to your regular email account, but the sender won’t know your true address. The new address you choose will end in “bouncr.com,” which isn’t that short but it has its advantages. Because if someone is sending you spam or otherwise unwanted messages, you can easily change or delete that address. If the bouncr address you select is already taken, try another. Joy tried to get joy@bouncr.com but it was taken, so she settled for joyschwab@bouncr.com. )

  1. Tried Bouncr, but Mailgun closed the account and basically Bouncr no longer exists. oh well. Any other recommendations for like sites?

  2. Nice catch!

    Anonymizer Nyms is similar and works well. Costs $20.
