I recommend using your own - that way you can confirm the email itself is functioning properly.

I agree, use your own. FYI for testing purposes use example.com It won't be used.

Using a several different addresses of your own, both POP3 and webmail is a good idea when testing anything that generates confirmations. Its also good keep these accounts in your mailing list so that you can identify any issues before customers start complaining.
