WhoAmIMailBot is a service to mask your e-mails. It was inspired by Blur, where you can create an alias for your e-mail and use it to signup on applications. The problem with Blur is that all e-mails pass trough their infraestructure and I don’t need/want anybody looking on my e-mails, so I made this project. It is similar to Blur service but runs on your own infraestructure!
How it works?
You will need:
- A domain (to not expend money you can use no-ip services);
- A VPS that allows smtp outbound;
- A telegram bot ID;
- Your telegram user ID;
- This project.
Your VPS will run a postfix that will redirect e-mails using the postfix function of virtual alias (where you can set an e-mail address to redirect all incoming messages to another e-mail), the no-ip domain will be the domain which you’ll use on your alias e-mails and the telegram bot will manage your alias.
