There’s also another reason.
It might be fun! How would you like to send an email that looks like it came from the President, Tax Office or Police? The possibilities for mischief are endless.
Whatever the reason, there are many resources available to those who need to send an anonymous email. The easiest methods are online services. Below I’ll list the top three for you.
send-email.org simple plain text
anonymouse.org simple plain text
deadfake.com html (rich text)
I checked these services for safety using SiteAdvisor.
These email sites are easy to use. You’ll only need to fill out:
- From: (make something up)
- To: (who is this email for?)
- Subject: (what’s the email about?)
- Message: (give them the bad news)
Typically, no attachments are allowed and you’ll have to fill out a captcha form to keep the spammers from using these services.
