Disposable Email Address Detector

       
Detects disposable email addresses "DEA", also known as trash email addresses such as "foo@mailinator.com".
            

Detects thousands of known dea domains.

It classifies those as disposable which operate as a time-limited, web based way of receiving emails, for example, sign up confirmations.

Essentially every email address may be of temporary use. Even freemail providers like yahoo and gmail offer [temporary] aliases. However, those are personal and may be in use for a longer period of time, and can often not be detected as such.

   
               

   

Input

       
A syntactically valid email address.
An invalid input exception is thrown if the address does not look like an email address.
       

   

Output

       

The email address is known to be disposable.

The email address is known to be not disposable.
This value is returned when the user/domain combination is known to be of another type, for example freemail or a business.

The domain has not been classified yet.
This value is returned for many domains, and in almost all cases it means that the address is not disposable.
