Introducing .... Mailinator Guy

Let me tell you a secret - if you want a positively sure way to get unfettered love and hate mail at the same time - just go redesign a website.

If you've used Mailinator for any length of time you see we changed the website design a few years back. We brought it from probably somewhere in Web 1.0 to current day.

The redesign was more than simply a redesign however - it changed how Mailinator worked. A great deal of internal code was added to prevent abuse of third-party sites using Mailinator.

Overall the redesign was a huge upgrade and success - and I promise you the lovers far outweigh the haters  :)  (site traffic got a significant and sustained increase too).

Our redesign this summer also served to introduce Mailinator.com's anti-spam superhero - Mailinator Guy !


He's here to save your inbox from spam. He can fly, has a magic envelope he carries with him everywhere, and of course has a neato secret lair.

Now - Mailinator Guy has his own webcomic !   So if you're a fan of Mailinator and like to read webcomics - what are you waiting for !

Sweet!

By the way, mailinator used to have a script/HTML code to place in a website to view mailinator email -- I hope I am explaining that right.

Do you remember that? Is it still available?

Thank you very much!
