I've had Tuffmail for 7 years without any problems. I'm guessing they want personal details for the trial so you don't send out spam or scams. That being said: if Tuffmail ever goes south, I'll...

Not sure why would you say that. I've been using Tuffmail with aliases since 2005 and I get zero spam to my aliases. For quick purchases, I have a "throw-away" Hotmail account. However, If I'm...
