Send an email that doesn't show ip or isp?

    Have tried some proxies - they won't do email.
    Have sock account, but origin of email is always available.
    Tried anonymous email services, but the ones that actually sent the email also had their advertising in the email so the recipent knows it's a faker.
    I'm hoping there is some easy way around this, so I can freely send emails without certain people looking at them and knowing who it is probably from.
    Any ideas?

    Using the Tor Browser to connect to secure webmail is probably the easiest way of getting some degree of email security. It's not just the headers, but the IP information retained by the ISP that is your problem, and TOR should take care of that end.

    The gold standard for truly anonymous email, though, is still the anonymous remailer. However, it takes more technical skill to use the remailer network than can easily be put in a short post. Most of the front-end software to use remailers is all but obsolete and actively user-hostile.

    ^^^^^^ Thanks. Much appreciated. I'll try your suggestions. :)
    User hostile is not for me, for sure. You nailed my problem on the head: with my regular email anybody can see my ISP, city, etc.

    ISP retains log data.

    There's a document somewhere for journalists who are trying to send out information by email from under a repressive regime - I can't find it right now but maybe someone else will?

    If you use browser to send email from your gmail account (to another gmail account), the originator IP is not added to the email headers. It should traceable by google in theory but not by recipient. I don't know what are exactly the rules for not including the IP, but I'm not the only one who noticed. Some other webmails behave similarly.

    If you intend on sending a spoofed email through your own ISP = major fail!

    The method is to stay hidden with no linking back and use another ISP or IP witch is not associated with the one doing the spoof. Logs are only bits of information of what was recorded and the analyzer of the log still has to make up their own mind of if the information in the log is useful.

    dont forget about the hardware MAC address :oops:

    Where in TCP or IP packets is the MAC address included?

    Thats what I meant when the question was...
    Q:Where in TCP or IP packets is the MAC address included?
    A: (No where/nowhere). IP is a protocol.

    I don't like grammar, lets keep this informal. :D

    Also your wrong the APR does travel past LAN .
    Keep in mind I will only correct you one time and if you think your right I will not say anything else about this.

    ARP over IP (not plain ARP) does travel over Internet, but the only time it should is for VPN connections. Otherwise it should be blocked at the border router.

    BTW, "(No where/nowhere). IP is a protocol." And protocols consist of packets.

    Totally awesome.

    Thinking about it, the VPN tunneling protocol should take care of getting the ARP packets from here to there. So let me change that: Block ARP over IP packets all the time.

    After looking closer at the Wikipedia ARP article (which needs a clean up), it doesn't describe an ARP over IP protocol, just plain old ARP.

    ARP is a non-routable protocol, and can therefore only be used between systems on the same Ethernet network

    Yes, it's an assistive protocol. On LANs. It's used to build a mapping table of MAC address <=> IP address, so that Ethernet packets (which use MAC address) get to the right box.

    You dont even understand the layers, you can not remove layer 2 and have layer 3 work. plain and simple.

    So what happens when someone sends an ARP broadcast message to the entire Internet?
  28. Ωmega Member

    ARP is used to resolve IP addresses to MAC address and DNS is used to resolve names to IP address.
  29. Anonymous Member

    Internet has a level 2, but not the Ethernet level 2 which ARP is part of.


    &quot;The Address Resolution Protocol is a request and reply protocol that runs encapsulated by the line protocol. It is communicated within the boundaries of a single network, never routed across internetwork nodes.&quot;

    Ok kid, after I tell you this I'm not answering any more and some one else will have to help you, sorry!

    APR protocol is layer 3, The header of IPv4 has the IP addresses in it. So that little dotted line from IP header layer 2 to the other IP header layer 3 is ARP.
    Now tell me why would layer 2 need the IP header from layer 3? If layer 3 doesn't talk to layer 2 to resolve IP address to MAC address.

    If you think being dumb is a game then play the fool.

    Dumb? How many cites do I have to provide that say ARP is a non-routed local protocol?
  35. Ωmega Member

    I can answer your question, but why cant I get an answer to mine?
    In order to send a packet each node the packet goes through has to do a hand shake(resolve the last IP to MAC for the next IP that takes the packet) as it goes through the network till it gets to the destination. So in other words, each node has to check the node that sent the packet before the next node can be sent the packet.

    APR can not be routed because the next node or sub-network in line is within its boundary and as soon as you connect your ISP your dealing with WAN networking.

    Now answer some of my questions, please.
