Temporary E-Mail Addys
A much better solution is spamgourmet (.com). Once you set up an account, you can do nifty things like determine how many messages will get passed on before killing the address--it's really handy for pages that require a live addy to sign up: you give them a bogus addy with a 1 in it, the first e-mail gets through to you so you can verify that the addy is live, and then anything else sent to that addy gets destroyed. Very nice.
Did you read the FAQ?
Did you read my post? That was a second thought, after the longer paragraph, about the better service.
But there are times when you don't want to bother setting up an account.
Spamgourmet only requires you to create an account once. After that, you can make your own fake emails the same way Mailinator works, except with the added benefits outlined above.
To me, SpamGourmet and Mailinator are two completely different beasts.

I'd like to second the recommendation of spamgourmet. It's very simple and flexible, and (among other benefits) helps you figure out which website sold your address to spammers. I don't understand the complaint about signing up for "yet another service"--it's trivial to do this once and then never worry about it again.
