In this way, is sending an anonymous email illegal?
But as some people have recently learned in very realand damaging ways, online anonymity is not a guarantee. There arelots of reasons someone may wish to send emails anonymously— to disclose sensitive information, report illegalactivity, blow the whistle, carry out an extramarital affair orsimply annoy others.
Furthermore, can an anonymous Gmail email be traced? Yes and No. For example, someone who sends amessage to your hotmail account shows in theX-Originating IP section of the headers. However, someone who sendsyou a message from GMail will ONLY trace backto Google IP addresses. We've got more information in ourTrace An Email questions and answersarea.
Then, how can I send an email without being traced?
