How to create a PEC email
Do you want to create a PEC email ? It seems to me an excellent idea, given that certified e-mail offers many advantages, first of all the possibility of sending and receiving messages to other PEC addresses that have legal value (like a registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt). And, as if that weren’t enough, by creating a PEC account it is possible to have all the other advantages offered by “traditional” email addresses, including the possibility of accessing them from WebMail and, in some cases, even from smartphones and tablets using special app.
To take advantage of a PEC address, as you can well imagine, you need to purchase an account from one of the accredited providers on the Italian market (e.g. LegalMail, Regiter.it, etc.), as there is no free service available that allows you to have a certified mail address (for the record, it existed until 2014, but has since been decommissioned).
In any case, you will be happy to know that some of the accredited providers allow you to create an account and use it for free for a relatively long trial period, after which you can decide whether to continue using the service by paying the expected fee (usually consisting of a few tens of euros a year, depending on the options you want to use) or less. If you want more information on how the PEC works, consult the guide I linked to you.
How to create a temporary email
I conclude this guide dedicated to creating an e-mail account by talking to you about the possibility of creating a temporary e-mail address , i.e. a “disposable” e-mail address that can be used in all those cases in which you do not want to “pollute” your main account ( for example when you want to subscribe to a service of dubious reliability).
There are various services that allow you to create a temporary email — the most famous are Tempinbox, AirMail, Guerrilla Mail — and they all work in more or less the same way: you go to the main page of the chosen service, create the temporary address providing the first part of the same and then presses the button through which to access the inbox of the “disposable” mailbox, with which to send and receive messages.
If you want more details on how to create a temporary email, take a look at the guide I linked to you: there you will find more information on what to do.
