So you've created your Myemailguru account, activated it and logged on. So what now?
The first thing you will want to do is to create one or more bMail addresses. This is simplicity itself; you simply click the
button. You will then see a poup up asking you how long you wish to use the bMail address for
Simply specify the number of days you want to use the new bMail address for and click OK. You have just created a new address which will appear in the bMail Addresses table and look something like this:
Here we see four bMail addresses - one per row
To use a bMail address, you simply use the address as you would use your normal email address. You can type the address out or easier still, select the bMail address and use the copy and paste functions of your browser/device to copy the address to wherever you need it.
Because bMail addresses contain a sequence of randomly generated characters, remembering which address has been used for which purpose can quickly become a chore. This is why you can maintain a set of notes with each bMail address by clicking on the icon. This will popup a window allowing you to add/edit the notes associated with a bMail address
The notes will also be display alongside the bMail address in the My bMail Adddresses tab
You can extend the life of your bMaill Address with the icon (which will be colored red, orange or green depending on how long the addrees has still to live. You then simplay choose the number of days to add to the life of the bMail address and click OK
Simply click on the icon and confirm that you wish to delete the bMail address

The My bMail Addresses tab is where you can manage your bMail addresses. Each line in the tables looks something like this:
The bMail address itself is fairly easy to spot and there is a ticker-tape just to the right of it which display notes about the Mail address (notes are explained below). So what about all those strange icons on the right?
Each of the icons to the right of the row can be clicked to modify the bMail address attributes. Simply moving the mouse over the icon will trigger a pop-up containing summary information and clicking the icon will allow you to better view/modify this information. Their meanings are as follows:

The two check-boxes hold the default values for Silent Reject and Domain Locked. These used to set the initial values when creating new bMail addresses (see above for explanations on the purpose of these attributes in each bMail address).
When managing your bMaill addresses from a PC, you will notice that whenever your mouse pointer hovers over an icon, a hint appears which explains a little more about the purpose of the icon. For example:-
On devices that do not have a mouse-pointer e.g smartphones, tablets etc there is no direct equivalent of hovering and the appearance of the hints and tips will vary according to the way the device simulates this functionaility. This of course is decided by the vendors, not us. For some devices, a brief tap on the icon will pop-up the hint whilst other require a tap and hold. The equivalent of a mouse-click on touch-screen devices is also some form of touch gesture, but lasting longer than a tap but not long enough to be considered a tap and hold. If this all sounds complicated, don't worry you'll soon get the hang of it with a bit of practice.
Here we explain the meaning of some of the terms and jargon that you may not be familiar with
A bMail address is an email address assigned to you which has a limited lifetime. During the lifetime of the bMail address, all email sent to it will be delivered to your primary email address. Emails are delivered in such a way that you can reply to them without revealing your primary email address.
The bMail system is the overall term for the patented technology which provides temporary email addresses (bMail addresses) with a limited lifespan and ensures that these email addresses can be used transparently without revealing the actual email address that receives them.
bMail traffic is the flow of emails through the bMail system it may be
For both inbound and outbound traffic your primary email address is not revealed by the bMail system
Your primary email address is the email address associated with your account when you signed up and is the destination for all your inbound bMail traffic.
