|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 firstname.lastname@example.org you can enter
the address at the site as email@example.com, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
