For privacy reasons, do you know of a no-registration email forwarder that
lasts longer than 1 month?

Jetable.org works well to forward registration mail to your real email for
most one-shot forum web registrations but sometimes you need a temporary
forwarding email to last longer than one month.

Jetable.org only lasts a maximum of a month.

Do you know of a no-registration email forwarding site (like jetable) that
lasts *longer* than one month?

I got a free domain name with DYN, and later switched a different one
with NO-IP.  I use ddclient, to keep the record pointed at my dynamic
IP address.

I run an exim config that drops all mail for my domain in a
directory where I can check it as needed.

this does nothing to hide my ip address though, so doesn't offer any
sort of real anonymity.  but I've stopped worring about signups
spamming my in-box.

Use Thunderbird as your E-mail application.  Create an "identity", which
is merely an alternative E-mail address.  This is a handy capability of
Thunderbird.  You can not only send E-mail from the alternative address,
but you can also receive E-mail at that address.

Yes, you do have to register the alternative address with your ISP.
Later, you can delete the identity and unregister its address at your ISP.

Are you wanting this just to avoid (or rather reduce) spam, or to  
conceal your identity for other reasons?

Some ISPs put a limit on the number, and/or charge, for that, though.

Some ISPs - and most hosting/forwarding services - allow you to use  
anything before the @ sign, without having to register it; I use that  
for anything that requires an email for registration etcetera. I usually  
use the name of the company/site involved, so I know who leaked it if I  
do get spam. I don't get _that_ much spam, so I have my email software  
set to collect emails with anything before the @ sign, as it's easier  
and I don't have to keep changing its settings; but you could set it to  
only accept certain ones, you'd just have to add the new one and then  
remove it after a while. I imagine that represents about the same amount  
of effort as setting up the forwarders you are seeking.

Obviously, this only works where you own (or rent) the bit after the @  
sign; no use to anyone whose email is just something @bigISP.com. I see  
the OP's email ends "@ziggo.net" - do you own that domain, or is it your  
ISP?
