Get a Free Email Account for Some Email Anonymity

If you want to send an email in a truly anonymous manner, you have to send it through a chain of remailers that remove all traces that can lead to you. This works reliably and is very secure, but it also is a tedious process.

If you want to send an email in a somewhat anonymous, in a semi-anonymous manner, there's an easier way:

Of course, you have enter personal details during the sign-up process and possibly also an email address that can be followed to you. The provider of the free email account can identify you.
