Thread: Gnome Evolution - how to hide (or anonymize) sender IP address?

  1. #1

    Question Gnome Evolution - how to hide (or anonymize) sender IP address?

    I am looking for a way to send emails using Gnome Evolution without reveling sender's IP address.

    Is that possible?

    Commonly done by sending through a proxy mail server (You can set one up or use a service).

    Proxies are used to anonymize just about anything, they don't just forward something they intercept (with your permission), modify or filter in any way you want, reconstruct and then send the new on its way in place of your original... And this can be anything besides mail. That way, if anyone inspects the contents and tries to trace the origin, they can go only as far as the proxy and no further.

    I am aware of the general concept of proxy (and Tor). The question is if anyone has done it and can probably share a fairly easy STR as I am not looking to become an academic expert on the subject of proxies but rather not to reveal info about the local computer to the sender.

    Hi
    Just don't be surprised when when your email may not arrive at it's
    destination as this is the sort of things spammers do, depending on
    what tools over the route your sending are using....

    Likewise getting to the forum here may/maynot work....

    Hi
    Trying to obscure your ip address, you may find your ISP smtp server will reject your mail, you may find the receiving mail system may reject your email.

    Tor exit nodes maybe blocked by an ISP's because of the spam they generate, so if you change your ip address then your mail may not get through...

    Some forum users have had issues using Tor connecting to the forum because the ip addresses are blocked....

    All I'm saying is you could run into issues...

    Hi
    Put another way, would you be happy for me to use your ISP provided ip address on the internet to identify myself?

    How exactly would you do that?
