Can it be traced? Can they find out the IP that it is coming from?
Why would you want to send an anonymous email? Sounds suspicious to me.
It's nothing malicious. Think along the lines of emailing a professor, a boss, a company director, etc.
Still don't understand...
My guess is that 3lite wants to tell someone off, but doesn't want it traced back to him.
What if I want to report something anonymously?
It depends on what you're reporting and what tools the recipient has at their disposal to trace it.
With your IP address and a connection at the ISP it comes from, I can get your name. If you use the TOR network to hide your tracks, the federal government with all of its resources can find you within a couple of months.
There are times and places for anonymous email...
Hopefully the OP knows what they're up to.
In any case, I won't be suspicious of the OP, but rather direct his or her attention to Ars:
In that article (from today no less) are references to places that support sending anonymous email, including Lavabit, which Snowden used (and has since shut down).
Disclaimer - I'm not a user of any of these. I just happened to be reading that article and saw this post.
Short of using an anonymous service, I suppose the OP could sign up with someone like Gmail or Yahoo whilst using a VPN or/proxy.
if you send it via email, i (they) can see you.
no matter what. no matter how. no matter when or why. don't ask how.
email = not secure. ever.
Are you afraid of being fired for your opinion? Or that your grade will be lowered because of a problem?
That is NOT the way to deal with an issue.
I'm fine with them seeing the email address. I just want to know if they can track that email address back to me via IP etc.
use a public computer and a fake email
If you just want to send an email, go to a public library and send it from one of their computers - it's probably safer and more anonymous than ANY proxy or anonymous email service. Failing that however, TOR is probably your next best bet.
yeah......just make a new account for a one time use
Whatchu know about dat TOR
I can't imagine why any of these would need to be anonymous. If you want to say something, then I believe you should be big enough to say who is sending it.
Internet cafe. Make sure you wear a baseball cap though or security cameras might identify you.
yes, and yes.
the more things you bounce off, the slightly longer it will take to resolve the sending location, but it can still be located.
as someone said above, use a different computer if it matters. just my 2 cents.
Read more about it here and here.
-Someone is stealing money from the boss
-There are people cheating in class screwing up the curve
-I want to donate anonymously
No, I am not big enough.
I wouldn't bust the OP's chops ... there are times when small minded people hold positions of power that can destroy you if you're not towing the company line.
Print out a letter and then mail it. Assume anything electronic is not anonymous.
Food for thought: Printer Steganography.
Wear gloves or they can trace your fingerprints.
Can you teach me everything you know?
