    Again, you must be doing something wrong there.

    I don't believe GMX is selling any emails, I mean, common now. #tinfoil

    Yeah, it has been great. I even get fake accounts(alias addresses) to use for free. I believe 10 fake emails.

    I also use the big boys, way more spam in those really. :yes:

    EDIT: Wow this way of posting looks really funny. :dunno:
    Can we address everything in one post? Should we? Is there a rule about it?:dont:

    Nice one, bookmarked it. Was using https://www.guerrillamail.com/ but will definitely give it a try.

    EDIT: They even have an Android app, nice one.

    Thanks! This looks like a good tool, in the same vein as Mailinator (https://www.mailinator.com/). Mailinator's gone bit downhill, since they've moved on from quick'n'simple one-shot e-mail to more corporate testing one. It's still good but plentiful of their domains are now blacklisted.

    But the more the merrier, so thanks again!

    If you are an GMX FreeMail user you have to use their paid service number if you've lost your password and can't remember your security question etc... They gonna charge you 4 Euro per call. I think that's where the 5 Euro are coming from.

    Oh really? That is actually really cool of them.

    I assume there will be a human asking you all sort of questions and verifying your identity before they give you your account back.
    I mean if someone doesn't remember his password/security question or doesn't have a restore email wouldn't really mind paying a small fee. After all they probably assign someone to your case.

    Although it does pose a security risk if someone knows you really well.

    But again I haven't seen any other email provider offer that. At least I couldn't find a way to restore my yahoo email from 2002.

    I think it depends on length of replies and whether the reply is covering different things which is going to look better. And if the first part is not covering what someone was following they might miss out if it is below another quote within the same reply.
    I don't really have a problem reading them either way. I do find 6 very short comments (not even replies) in a row a bit annoying.
    Kind of like the person just likes to see their avatar over the whole page. :rofl:
