Free webmail service offers disposable email aliases and antispam whitelist

Umail.net has launched a free webmail service designed to provide a smoother experience along with convenience of use. The new webmail allows creating email aliases under a single account with just one mouse click, and offers antispam protection based on an e-mail address whitelist.

Umail.net is specifically geared to those who need a large number of email addresses without remembering a large number of passwords. The service allows its users to create additional email addresses (aliases) that will forward messages to the main account. While email aliases are also available at some other webmail services, Umail.net developers took care to make this feature particularly convenient by adding a special Aliases menu. From this menu a user can create new aliases (alias@username.umail.net, where “alias” is any prefix) and delete them as they become redundant or compromised – all with one click of a mouse.
