About Brooks Nelson

Brooks heads up Mailinator's Business Development and helps with customer-facing communications. He draws from nearly 2 decades of experience working in the IT and Marketing industries.

We'd love for you to get a taste for Mailinator with a free trial:

I think there are some interesting this to discuss regarding Mailinator's history and how it stands above other solutions from an “enterprise grade” standpoint. Mailinator has been around since 2003 and because it began as a free public service, the systems have had to withstand the worst of the internet's efforts to break it and abuse it. Some of the world's most well known brands leverage Mailinator's API to ensure that their email and SMS workflows are intact; Docusign, Dropbox, Fitbit (Google), HP, IBM, Toyota, BMW, GM… the list goes on.

We've also recently launched a premium free tier for Developers and Testers called Verified Pro. The goal is to give the full functionality (API access and a private domain) of Mailinator to members of the testing and development community.
