Are you sure that those "anon remailers" do not log all the
transactions? And those logs can be read upon recipient
(argumented) request. So, it does not seem to be "really well"

Actually, it supports. If you own a mailhost, you can eaisily
inject messages in input queue by many different ways instead of
SMTP. UUCP, etc. And the recipient will see a message originated
from local server user (i.e, nobody), nothing more. That's OK
for hiding corporate network internals. For instance, my users
(and me) place their mail to a Samba fileserver fake print queue
(Novell/DHarris Mercury heritage). See this message headers: you
do not see my Windows workstation IP in it. Instead, you see my
Unix UID: maybe, it is not very good :-)
And surely, the original Ali's message is very unclear. It has
many interpretations. For instance, what does it mean in
reality: "to buy a smtp mailserver" :-)? The range vary from Zmailer source
download to ISP co-location service.
