Hi,

yes restriction are not the best.
However the tested services (E4ward, Spamex) asking both for money and have

E4ward.com: Non working Read More site, Dokumentation on version 1.0 and Copyright from 2012
Spamex.com: News site last reply from 2003 and advertising on main page from 2015.

So honestly im not sure if here is everything up to date beside the payment site.

Within 33mail you have forwarded / spam / blocked counter but no number of limiting recieving mails.
An what i will pobably use in future is my own domain because i also figured out some sites who not accepting SG domains.

BUT this is only the option if SG really shut down what I will not hope.
I would much more like to spend my money here.

Regards
Duck

A couple of large attachments and you're done. Not to mention even in the most expensive plan "the size limit for attachments is 10M".
Likewise for limiting how many times you're allowed to reply to messages.
Do you know what's "Custom settings"?
In the free plan, do the ads apply to the website or also to the e-mail messages themselves?
Last but not least, do they have eaten log, exclusive senders and counters?


Attachments & replies restrictions are fine for my usage.
No, I don't know what they mean by Custom settings
When I tried the free plan before forking out $12/year, the ads were in the banner/tag and it was a single text line, no images, not too bad. In the Premium plan, the ad goes away and you can adjust the position of the banner (top, bottom, both or none)
No eaten log, simple per-alias forwarded/spam/blocked counter.

As stated by others, SG exclusive sender feature (with regex that too!) is really a SG exclusive, would love to have that but its absence has not bothered me so far.

Thanks

Did you try all SG domains? One server was refusing all checked domains, I was about to give up as I tried one using the first letters of the alphabet. And this one was accepted.

Here's one which I've been testing lately, and I've been very happy with it:
https://www.simplelogin.io

They as well as https://trashmail.com also support custom domains, so it's highly unlikely that the domain is being blocked. I've never encountered such a problem.

You might also want to have your own forum, but I can see by your notes you might find it too time consuming.

plops, I've sent you a PM in this forum back in October 2019 but it wasn't delivered.
Please check your PMs here so we'll be able to discuss further.
Thanks!

Available As A Service at https://erine.email, or on-premise (install it on your own server) at https://gitlab.com/mdavranche/erine.email.
Free, open-source. Tel me what you think about it!

Nice service, but not really an alternative option at all to me.
I wrote an email to the contact adress in oktober 19 and one again december 19 and didn't even get a response.
If I look at the board/gitlab, it seems that there is no support at all for this service.
sadly. it looks pretty nice.

anonaddy.com - It's really cool that this email forwarding service PGP encrypt msgs from the server to the user.

Yopmail is not a relevant replacement for SG because it's not a forwarding service.

Yopmail is also lousy at what it does. It's a disposable email service and it pushes broken CAPTCHAs to Tor users. And if you run google j/s, it pushes a Google CAPTCHA.

There's a brand new (free) service in town - Firefox Private Relay.

The information about it is very limited, and it probably doesn't help being "experimental, invite-only".

If you got in, please report if it's any good.

For me there's an immediate "disqualifier" here - it can't be used without an add-on, which is a dictatorial move which probably by definition means it's only good for forms.
So probably no reply masking or making up addresses while talking to someone on the phone or on person. I assume no custom aliases either.
Probably also no way to edit existing addresses other than disabling them.

If you're not invited to it, but like code, then you can actually browse its open source.

All you have to do is copy and paste them into the search bar and you'll see they were already mentioned in this thread:
  1. viewtopic.php?p=8303&hilit=simplelogin.io#p8303
  2. viewtopic.php?p=8317&hilit=anonaddy.com#p8317
In any case, their free plans are what I would call "a demo", i.e. only 15 aliases in one, only 10MB Monthly Bandwidth, no custom aliases (for shared domains) and no replies in the other.

Let's say you agree to pay up. Still feel free to test them if they miss any of Spamgourmet's essential features.
For example, both of them barely offer any domains to choose from, which means you might be blocked in no time. They probably expect you to buy your own domain (and later have it blacklisted!).

You can even test without registering an account as bugmenot.com should contain existing users for both of them.
The first test I would do is can you create aliases via e-mail, as that's one my most used Spamgourmet features (I talk to a rep on the phone and pretend I already have an address with them).
Obviously it can't work in the second service due to the aforementioned limitation.
