[June 7, 2015: The confirming emails from the White House are presently not arriving at Mailinator. This problem occurred with AOL for awhile and then cleared up, so hopefully the same will happen with Mailinator. In the meantime, AOL, Yahoo, and I assume other mail servers are receiving the White House’s confirming emails okay. Unlike with Mailinator, of course, you’ll have to create those email boxes before initialing our messages. The other hints below still hold.]
Mailinator creates an instantaneous anonymous email box when you initial a meme-message!
Open our current White House meme-messages by clicking on their titles, and after entering an initial into both name boxes (the site will register your signature from just an initial in each name box, whether you use Mailinator or not), in the box for email address type any random combination of letters and numbers, e.g. “uh48jiiuv,” followed by “@mailinator.com”
Then copy what you just entered, “firstname.lastname@example.org,” and click “sign now.”
Then go to the site mailinator.com and paste into their window what you just copied, and click on “check it” to check the email box you just magically created!
Usually the White House’s confirming email will be waiting for you (if not, refresh the page), and clicking on the indicated link in that email confirms your signature.
Wasn’t that a breeze? Call the rest of your family and friends to the computer and let them quickly add initials too, no muss no fuss! 😉
Your initials usually won’t appear right away on the meme-message.
150 initials make our meme-messages visible at the White House.
[If anything is confusing in the above, please see the second and third comments below ]
The absolutely easiest way you can be part of the larger BUGS effort to make that happen is to initial our White House meme-messages every month on the FIRST!
We can easily send you a reminder if you contact us, or if you’re a STALWART!
