Time Limit Milter






12 March 2008

Time Limit Milter is a filter for Sendmail under Linux that sets a use before date on email addresses.

From time to time you might want to use your email address in web sites or services that you don't fully trust, maybe you just want to try a service but to get access you need to enter an email address. There are a few ways to deal with this, you can for example set up an entire new account, or an alias to an existing address. Both those two solutions require some work for each new address.

Time Limit Milter has the solution to this problem, it is a way to set a 'Use Before'-date on an existing email address. For example, if your email address is anders@andersson.se you can enter the address at the site as anders+080401@andersson.se, that means emails to this address will be delivered to Anders until, and including, 1st of April 2008, after that the emails gets returned with 'user unknown'.

This function do not in any way affect the usage of the email address itself, emails sent to anders@andersson.se will always be delivered. When you want a new email address with a time limited use, simply select a date and use it, you don't have to do anything on the server or with your email account.
