burner.kiwi is a temporary mail service. It gives you an email inbox and will allow you to receive email at the address for 24 hours.
They tend to be slow, have terrible UI, have lots of ads and trackers, and transfer 10x the amount of data that burner.kiwi does.
burner.kiwi is currently deployed on AWS Lambda in the ap-southeast-2 (Sydney) region. It uses DynamoDB as the backing database. If this service gets popular and costs increase, I may switch to a normal virtual server.
Roger is the mascot of burner.kiwi. He is a pyromaniac kiwi bird.
Emails live only as long as your inbox does, plus a bit more. All email messages have an expiry set to the same time as your inbox. After they expire, they are marked for deletion and are typically deleted within 48 hours.

I don't. If by some miracle this takes off and server bills get out of hand, I may look for donations or sponsors. I promise I will never put terrible user-hostile ads on though.
Absolutely. Go check out the instructions on the Github page for how to host your own.
