Using disposable email addresses can be a good way to deal with people who send you lots of spam emails.
You create a new disposable email address each time you need to sign up for some online service or to download a document etc. – any time where you don’t really want to use that service more than a few times or suspect they may sell your email address to spammers.
Any messages sent to the disposable email address will be automatically forwarded to your proper email address. The big advantage is that if that service starts sending you unwanted spam messages then you simply delete the disposable address.
With Yahoo you can create endless disposable address based on your real address, but hiding it.
e.g. if my email address is fred.flintstone @yahoo.com then I can choose to create, for example
fredff900golfclub @yahoo.com and fredff900subscriptions @yahoo.com and fredff900sales @yahoo.com and so on without limit.
