Info on anonymous remailers

The newest version of this document can be obtained by sending mail to: mg5n+ remailers@andrew.cmu.edu Automated software will email you a copy. I try to keep this info as up to date as possible, but I may have missed something. If there are any errors, or if you have anything to suggest or contribute, please let me know.

The Cypherpunks' remailers allow you to send anonymous mail by adding the
header Request-Remailing-To: and sending to one of the addresses listed below.
Most (but not all) of these remailers also accept Anon-To: in place of
Request-Remailing-To. These headers must be typed exactly as you see them;
most remailers are case-sensitive. Mail without these headers is either
rejected or delivered to the remailer administrators. The standard
cypherpunks anonymous remailers are:

hfinney@shell.portal.com
catalyst@netcom.com
nowhere@bsu-cs.bsu.edu
remailer@chaos.bsu.edu
ebrandt@jarthur.claremont.edu
remailer@merde.dis.org
remailer@rebma.mn.org
rperkins@nyx.cs.du.edu
rperkins@nyx10.cs.du.edu
hal@alumni.caltech.edu

If you can not add the required headers, place two colons (: :) on the very
first line of your message, then on the next line type Request-Remailing-To:
and the address you want to send anonymously to. Skip a line, and then
begin your message. Note that by using this method it is possible to send
a message consecutively thru more than one remailer.

remailer@soda.berkeley.edu works slightly differently. It includes an
encrypted reply block so that people can replies to your messages. It also
requires that you use the header Anon-Send-To: to send anonymously, and
features a direct usenet posting service. For more information on this
remailer, finger remailer@soda.berkeley.edu, or send mail to the remailer
with the Subject: remailer-info
remail@extropia.wimsey.com requires that you public-key encrypt your
messages with PGP. This added security prevents a hacker or nosey
sysadmin at your site from reading your outgoing mail or finding out where
it's going. This remailer is not directly connected to the internet,
so messages will be delayed about an hour.
Some of the other remailers support PGP as well.
For remailers which support both encryption and plaintext messages, identify
encrypted messages by adding a header which reads: Encrypted: PGP
Encryption keys can be found below.
You can add additional headers to your message by placing two number signs (##)
at the beginning of the first line of the message body, and then add the
special headers on subsequent lines. The bsu remailers require that you
place the Subject: header in the body of the message, after the ##. The
original subject line is removed. One common use of this feature is to add
a Reply-To: line, so that replies can be redirected to you via an anonymous
forwarding address. To get an anonymous forwarding address, send mail to
mg5n+ getid@andrew.cmu.edu For other information about this remailer, send
mail to mg5n+ remailer-help@andrew.cmu.edu
There is a pseudonym-based anonymous remailer at anon.penet.fi. For
information on this remailer, send mail to: help@anon.penet.fi
There is another anonymous contact service at chop.ucsd.edu. It's not as
full-featured as anon.penet.fi, but is considerably faster since it is not
burdened by such a heavy load. For information on this remailer,
send mail to: acs-info@chop.ucsd.edu
There is a similiar service at twwells.com. For information on this system,
send mail to anon-help@twwells.com
Anonymous postings to usenet can be made by sending anonymous mail to one of
the following mail-to-usenet gateways:

group.name@demon.co.uk
group.name@news.demon.co.uk
group.name@news.cs.indiana.edu
group.name@bull.com
group.name@cass.ma02.bull.com
group.name@undergrad.math.uwaterloo.ca
group.name@magnus.acs.ohio-state.edu
group.name@ccs.uwo.ca (Kills headers, generates new Message-ID)
group.name@julian.uwo.ca (Kills headers, generates new Message-ID)
group.name@uunet.ca (Limited newsgroups)
group.name@cs.dal.ca (Limited newsgroups)
group.name@ug.cs.dal.ca (Limited newsgroups)
group.name@paris.ics.uci.edu (Limited newsgroups)
group.name.usenet@decwrl.dec.com (Preserves ALL headers)

--> If you know of any more of these, please tell me!!! <--

Also tell me if you have problems with any of the usenet gates listed above.
The mail-to-news gateways do not anonymize messages; you must use a
remailer if you want the message to be posted anonymously.

It would also be advisable to try a post to alt.test before relying on any
such system to function as expected. Also note the special syntax required
at dec.com

The following are PGP public keys of the remailers which support encryption:

The operation of this system of remailers is a group effort which relies on
the contributions of many generous people. Please do not abuse the remailers.
If you have problems with a remailer, most of the remailer operators can be
contacted by sending mail to the remailer's address without a remailing
request header. Otherwise, follow the instructions that come in the messages
from the remailer. Do not send complaints to postmaster at the site.
Most of the remailers are run by people who are not the site administrators.
Sending to postmaster or the site admins will most likely just make them
annoyed at you, and won't get your problem resolved.
If you can run an anonymous remailer, please volunteer to do so.
Software is availiable from anonymous-FTP at
ftp.csua.berkeley.edu in the directory /pub/cypherpunks/remailer/
Other remailer software is availiable at chaos.bsu.edu
in the directory /pub/cypherpunks/remailer/
or contact me and I'll send you what you need.
The software can often be run on personal accounts;
Root or sysadmin access is not required in most cases.
There are two usenet forums for discussion of anonymous remailer systems,
alt.privacy.anon-server and alt.anonymous
Additional information on the anonymous remailers is availiable from
gopher://chaos.bsu.edu/
