Question need help: no verification email service

Which email service does not require a phone number or alternative email address to create an email account?

This is to send-receive sporadically a limited amount of emails, maybe 4-5 a month. Most often used for throwaway signups.

My usual go to was cock from OvO systems, but they closed registrations and move to an invite only basis. Feeling orphaned.

Tutanota allows in theory, in practise: Registration is temporarily blocked for your IP address to avoid abuse. Please try again later or use a different internet connection.
inbox.lv allows in theory, but can't get past the nagging google captcha.

freephonenum in theory is nice for those services requiring phone verification. You may find many/most numbers are alredy associated with phone verification for email.

Yandex is the only one I could get to work.

Any other suggestions please? Thank you!

I signed up for a 30 day trial inbox.eu account. Providing a cellphone number or a backup email address was optional. I gave it my Fastmail address. No problem using their webmail. I never ran into a captcha.

However, it turns out the trial version disables POP/IMAP/SMTP access unless you either upgrade or provide a cellphone number. Since its only $3/year for a 100GB mailbox I upgraded to a paid version, enabled POP/IMAP/SMTP in the webmail settings and was able to add a IMAP account to Thunderbird. It forces you to use a app password (which it creates for you) instead of your normal password, with a email client.

If I recall, posteo.de allows it. The price is more than reasonable, and it's an excellent service. But if you are looking for free, I don't know.

I just posted about Inbox.lv. No Captcha but it's demanding a telephone.

You can remove the phone number and backup email address from a Gmail account once you are signed up.

I wonder what's the rationale in having an entirely separate email account just for using 4-5 times a month. It seems that using a separate email address within an existing email account would be much more convenient (without the hassle of having to login to a separate account just for these few emails).
I use spamgourmet.com for throwaway addresses, but it requires an email address for signup (it's a forwarding service. Doesn't work without a separate address).

ISPs typically provide a free email account for customers. They might not support plus-addressing in their webmail but their smtp server might support it. In that case you could create throwaway addresses on the fly if you use a email client like Thunderbird. Some smartphone email apps like K-9 don't support doing that on the fly but do support creating additional identities and selecting one of them as the senders address when composing a message.

i.e. if your address is [email protected] and you want to create a throwaway address for communicating with costco you could use [email protected] as your From: address. Any email sent to that address goes to your normal inbox but if you start getting spam from them you can create a filter to block that specific address (or white list just the email addresses you want to work).

The rationale is clarity - plus, if one address is compromised, it goes down by itself.
