    I'm curious on how to do this!

    So if you could help me and explain about this a little bit to me then I would really appreciate it!!!

    Thanks

    EDIT: All I want is a site I can use so I can send an anonymous email and I don't care if it's untraceable or not and I don't want it to have any delays when sending the message.

    All I want to do is play a trick on my friend.

    Is there a site I can use for this to send an anonymous email with no sending delays and it be free?????

    All I wanna do is send an anonymous email from a site and have the email sent to my friends phone as a text!!!!

    Cause I have sent one of these emails and I couldn't trace it, but the site is only a trial version for 14 days. I even sent the email to my phone and it just showed a weird number as to who the sender was.

    And now I'm curious of other ways that I can do this.

    So any other info you guys may have about this will be appreciated!

    And yea I'm sure its possible an expert hacker could trace these, but I don't need anything super fancy like that.

    Nothing is untraceable.

    You may be able to send anonymously, but it can always be traced back to your IP address.

    There's a great website for sending interesting anonymous emails to work colleagues.

    Some examples "You might want to consider wearing longer skirts/dresses.", "We can see when you are surfing the internet to non-work related sites."

    and there's plenty more preformed messages like that. It's called nicecritic.

    Using a stack of proxy tunnels and then sign up for an email account?

    Couldn't you go to the public library, set up a bogus address, send the email, and be done with it? I know that you are not completely safe, but this would probably be better than doing it from home or something.:rolleyes:

    But can it fake an IP so that it can't be traced?

    That's kind of the point here; complete anonymity.

    It can be traced back to an IP address; that doesn't mean it is yours. You can use a public WiFi connection, an open AP at your neighbors place, a proxy, open mail server, etc.

    To the OP. I would use a VMWare Fusion, Parallels or BootCamp and use a windows installation that would be removed after this single use. This keeps any information about your OS and hostname from being included in the SMTP information. Next, I would use a public hotspot. The hardest part will be the SMTP server. Use the wrong one and the mail will be viewed as SPAM; use the right one and it will be sent through.

    Sort of. You need to understand TCP/IP first; mainly TCP. I won't give you the answer; do enough reading and you will find it.

    A combination of these two would make it untraceable to you personally, although it could probably still be traced to the computer.

    Correct. There are probably very, very few open SMTP servers left online.

    Ok. Thanks everyone. But is there a site I can use like nicecritic that I can use to send an anonymous email message, but a message that "I" create not a choice of specific messages to choose from???

    Don't even bother. That is too advanced right now.

    Does nobody else see a train wreck coming here?

    No it cant, and I reckon with that particular service both the sender and the recipient will generally come from the same IP address anyhow. In practice, though even if the IPs are the same, IT could piece it together to a given user if they wanted to.

    Probably, but I think the goal is to keep the recipient from finding out who sent the email.

    Use Google and search for the following:
    RFC 791
    RFC 1180

    There are plenty of others. I will pretty much guarantee that you won't understand it. Anyone that is a true network architect knows this front and back.

    If there are records, it can be traced.

    Oh, I certainly do.

    Silly question: is this even legal?
