    No. Your browser submitted data including referrer headers, and IP address are submitted with your requests.

  • Can I enter my primary email address into sMoreMail?

    Yes. You can use sMoreMail with any email address that is yours.

Some sources of email may continue to email addresses you've enter into sMoreMail even if you are no longer using sMoreMail.

  • Can I enter my personal information into sMoreMail?

    Yes, but hold up a second. While sMoreMail tends to work best if you have each field of information filled in, you are not required, or encouraged to enter personal information as sMoreMail has no idea how some websites use the information you submit. Consider using generic information perhaps from a fake name generator.

  • How do I remove my web form from being indexed by sMoreMail?

    sMoreMail uses visitor submitted information as an interactive computer service. This service is provided 'as is' with no warranty. If your website has been indexed by a visitor, and you wish visitors from sMoreMail to not interact with your page, you can change the page url, implement CAPTCHA, or implement a mechanism to reject form submissions from visitors that originate from sMoreMail.

    No. If you are under 18 years of age you may not use sMoreMail. While we don't actively publish adult content and will remove it if it's discovered, sMoreMail uses visitor submitted information as an interactive computer service. Because it is possible the submitted information can link to adult material, children may not use sMoreMail. Futhermore, in some juristictions you're not able to aggree to the terms of use or privacy policies before a specific age - so, there's that.

  • Can I enter another person's email address or information into sMoreMail.

  • Cookies?

    Milk? No. Just kidding.
    Yup sMoreMail uses cookies for core content, ads, tracking, games, enhanced user experiences, and all around magic-smoke-summoning and wizardry. Block cookies at the browser level or with an addin if you don't want them, review and delete your local cookies and storage directly from the privacy policy and statement, or don't use sMoreMail. If you take off, we are sad to see you go, but not sad enough to break half the internet or it's RFCs supporting the best-practice of allowing you and your computer to store your data (as opposed to stuffing your data into some corporate/cloud server, fingerprinting your browser to host cookieless sessions, and not telling you about it).

  • What's with the User Submitted Articles?
