Sooner or later, a developer creating a web application will surely face a number of issues related to email. Registration of new users, feedback from an administrator or developer, web page or app mailing, sending email notifications, sending requests to sales consultants in an online store – all this requires the correct email settings within the app or site. Of course, you can use the CMS (content management system), but the performance of its mail services is far from ideal and requires a thorough check, that is, manual functional testing. Thus, activation of a ready-made user registration module on the site with the help of the CMS does not guarantee that it will operate properly, so the webmaster has to check its functionality manually.

Thus, the developer has to manually register test users, while specifying a workable email address. That is, the developer has to constantly spend a lot of time creating test email addresses using free email services. In this case, the developer can make one’s life easier by using the so-called temporary mail, the lifespan of which is short, and which does not require registration that usually takes up our precious time.

Note that Crypto G Mail does not have a function of sending emails from a temporary mailbox. This is done to ensure user protection from various viruses and other safety issues like spammers, who attack ordinary Internet users with unnecessary information.

In what other cases might a web developer need temporary mail?

For example, when creating a feedback form used by site visitors or web application users to send messages to a developer or administrator by email. This form often requires the implementation of additional security measures to prevent attacks on the administrator's mailbox. Therefore, one should not use real mailboxes for the feedback form until security tools have been verified to work. It is better to use a temporary mail from Crypto G Mail for functional testing of the feedback form.

Another example is implementing mailings to site users. It would seem that the simple function of sending messages to the email addresses of registered users should not require testing from the developer, but there are some nuances. The mailing functionality can contain a dozen different options, and each of them needs to be tested using temporary mailboxes.

While working, the developer has to check the efficiency of sending messages to email more than a dozen times, and registering dozens of mailboxes is too tiring and time-consuming.

Fortunately, Crypto G Mail is here to make the world a safer place and it will gladly help you in your work.
