    hi,

    I'd like to know if there are any available smtp in order to receive and send anonymous email, I don't want to give my email all over the net, just to those who I trust.
    I tried http://anonymprom.com/signup_mail.htm
    but the smtp and pop3 that they give, do not work in outlook.
    any ideas?
    thanks

    Well, no I didn't find anything useful there, I don't need remailers, I want to use my own email client but use a different smtp for outgoing email, and this smtp should be anoymous.
    I've found this utility: http://www.softheap.com/emlsec.html called email security and it seems to work, but now the problem is that by bypassing my ISP and sending email directly, these emails are read like spam by their own ISP.
    Now, the big issue is this: is there any smtp that I can use in my email client, so that I can bypass my ISP but still not to have the email I send, read like spam?

    I believe it is more a function of the recipient's ISP as to what is deemed spam. Factors include multiple addressees, subject line, senders return address, etc. and I'm not aware of a way of changing that. On the other hand, your recipients could put you on their 'white' list and the mail would get through. Not much help, huh? :eek:

    I know but in my case I am sending 1 message to one person, no multiple addresses, no spam, and I still didn't understand if it exists an smtp server that I can put in my mail client in order not to send my IP and PC name over the internet....
    Does it exist something like that??

    Actually I found the solution on usning telnet to port 25 and connecting with one free
    smtp server like ingleby.com but for some reason I always get this message: my IP is not permitted to relay through this server. Pheraphs you have not logged into the pop/imap server in the last 30 minutes or do not have SMTP authentication turned on in your email client.
    What does it mean? Does anyone know how to solve this problem?
    thank you!
