Re: BLIND OPEN RELAY HELP
You are looking for complete anonymity ?
By default the ZMailer is configured (and equiped) for
"Internet Surveillance Project" needs -- it makes things
easier for ISPs to hunt down the badies when there is
some real data at hand.
Some have asked to strip out all Received: headers, but
I have not implemented that -- See RFC 2821 about loop
detection. Replacing all former Received: headers might
make sense when the message is going into controlled
direction. That is, email coming into a site keeps its
Received: headers intact, but one going out gets them
However, doing security by OBSCURITY is no (real) security,
so I really don't see point there in hiding things for mere

The Yahoo system got it from IP address 188.8.131.52
which reverses as: webcacheW02b.cache.pol.co.uk
To find your real identity, I would need to make some detailed
questions to pol.co.uk admins, and it would not be guaranteed
that I would get any reply.

got a bunch of commercial services as well as some probably
free service pointers.
There used to be system called 'anon.penet.fi', but
that is long gone.
Newer things seem to be:
