I would like to send an email that can't be traced back to me, is there a simple direct approach to do that?

I mean an electronic way that doesn't involve me going to an Internet cafe wearing a hoodie in order to avoid cameras.

  • I need no response
  • Obviously I don't want my email to be flagged as spam and never gets noticed.
  • I would like to report a serious issue to the authorities, I would like to remain anonymous because I don't want to testify.

    @Ulkoma If you trust no-one then you might find things very difficult. Also bear in mind that emails lacking an identifiable source (in the form of SPF and DKIM records) are liable to be caught by spam filters. Maybe mail2tor.com is more up your street.

    The big question is: do you need to get a response of any sort? Secondarily, are you concerned about it getting caught by a spam filter (users with high volume mailboxes, such as corporate email accounts, will use heavier filters since the addresses are publicized and subject to more spam). Also, include how your question is different from this one: security.stackexchange.com/questions/24570/…

    Sorry for the countless follow ups but this is a very nuanced subject. The final answer to your question rests on how sensitive the information you are emailing will be. For example, if you are emailing someone to tell them you are a secret admirer (and do so without any illegal intent) then any email provider will suffice; since while you are not anonymous to the provider, they will hold your identity in confidence. If you are emailing state secrets as a whistleblower and hope to evade prosecution, wherein the provider will divulge all their data, you obviously need a different approach.
