What can you use the app for?

MailExpire lets users create email aliases that can be used to help prevent the occurrence of spam in email accounts and inboxes. The email aliases can expire and users are able to determine when such email accounts expire. The ability to get rid of spam can be quite beneficial especially where inboxes can be filled with tons of spam. With email account aliases, users get a temporary which can be used to sign up for things online that normally require a email confirmation or the need to receive content by email. However, because this is a temporary account, the users do not need to worry about continuing to receive such emails.
