How to Send Anonymous Emails


bbe4318.jpg
Most of us are very curious to know a method to send anonymous emails to our friends for fun. But the question is, is it possible to send anonymous emails in spite of the advanced spam filtering technology adopted by email service provides like Gmail, Yahoo etc? The answer is YES, it is still possible to bypass their spam filters and send anonymous emails to your friends. For example, you can send an email to your friend with the following sender details.
From: Bill Gates <billg@microsoft.com>
The art of sending this kind emails is known as Email Spoofing. In my previous post on How to Send Fake Email I insisted on using your own SMTP server to send anonymous emails. This method used to work successfully in the past, but today it has a very low success rate since Gmail and Yahoo(all major email service providers) blocks the emails that are sent directly from a PC. In this post I have come up with a new way to send anonymous emails (spoofed emails) that has 100% success rate. If you have to successfully send an anonymous email or spoofed email, you should send it using a relay server.
What is a Relay Server?
In simple words, a relay server is an SMTP Server that is trusted by Google or Yahoo as an authorised sender of the email. So, when you send an email using a relay server, the email service providers like Yahoo and Gmail blindly accept the emails and deliver it to the inbox of the recipient. If the SMTP server is not authorised, Google and Yahoo will reject all the emails sent from this SMTP server. This is the reason for which using our own SMTP server to send emails fail.
So What’s Next?
Now all we have to do is, find a trusted SMTP server to Send Spoofed Emails. Usually all the emails that are sent from web hosting providers are trusted and authorised. So, you have to find a free web hosting provider that allows you to send emails. But, most of the free Web Hosts disable the Mail feature and do not allow the users to send emails. This is done just to avoid spamming. However all the paid hosting plans allow you to send any number of emails. Once you find a hosting service that allows to send emails from their servers, it’s just a cakewalk to send anonymous emails. All we have to do is just modify the email headers to insert the spoofed From address field into it.
I have created a PHP script that allows you to send emails from any name and email address of your choice. The script can be found here.
Anonymous Email Sender Script
Here is a step-by-step procedure to setup your own Anonymous Email Sender Script
1. Goto X10 Hosting and register a new account.
2. Download my Anonymous Email Sender Script (sendmail.rar).
3. Login to your FreeWebHostingArea Account and click on File Manager.
4. Upload the sendmail.php, pngimg.php and bg1.PNG files to the server.
5. Set permissions for sendmail.php, pngimg.php and bg1.PNG to 777.
6. Now type the following URL
http://yoursite.x10hosting.com/sendmail.php
NOTE: yoursite must be substituted by the name of the subdomain that you have chosen during the registration process.
7. Use the script to send Anonymous Emails. Enjoy!!!
Tell me whether it worked or not. Please pass your comments…

Verify security


Fix Mail Apps and Devices Show Incorrect Password Error After Enabling 2...
[Fix] Mail Apps and Devices Show Incorrect Password Error After Enabling 2-Step Verification in Microsoft or Gmail Account "2-step verification" is an important security feature which protects your online account whether its your email account or a social networking account. It asks for an extra security code each time you try to sign in to your account. This security code is sent to your registered mobile phone or alternative email ID.
Recently Microsoft enabled this 2-step verification feature for Microsoft accounts which are used for emails, Windows 8, XBox, etc. On the other hand Google is already providing two-step verification in its Gmail service since long time.
If you enabled 2-step verification feature in your Microsoft or Gmail account, you might be facing a weird issue. If you try to access your email account using an email client such as Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird, Microsoft Outlook, etc, it'll now allow you to sign in using your current password. It'll show you an incorrect password error message even if your password is absolutely correct. The same problem will also occur if you try to sign in using your Microsoft account in devices such as Xbox 360 or Android smartphones.
Now the question comes why does this problem occur? Why do these mail apps and devices not accept your correct password? The answer is very simple. These mail apps and devices were not designed to ask you for the extra security code which is required for 2-step verification. Since these apps and devices don't ask for security code, the 2-step verification procedure is not completed successfully, hence you can't sign in using your credentials in those apps and devices.
So what's the solution? The solution is very simple. Every company which provides 2-step verification feature, also allows you to create special passwords for these mail apps and devices. You can create separate passwords for each app and device and then you can use that special password to sign in to those apps or devices. Now those apps and devices will accept the new password and will allow you to access your account without any problem.
So if you have enabled 2-step verification feature in Microsoft or Gmail account and if you are facing login password problems in mail apps or devices, you just need to create above mentioned special passwords or codes to sign in without any problem.
Just follow these simple steps to create app passwords for your Microsoft or Gmail account:
A. Create App Password in Microsoft Account 1. Open your Microsoft account security settings page by clicking on following link:
Open Microsoft Account Security Settings Page
2. You'll see "App passwords" section at the bottom of the page which shows following information:
Some apps and devices don't support security codes. In these cases, you need to create an app password to sign in. 3. Click on "Create a new app password" link and it'll immediately provide you a new password generated randomly.
create_app_password_microsoft_account.png
Now you can use this new password to sign in to a 3rd party mail app or device.
B. Create Application Specific Password in Gmail Account

1. Open your Google account settings page by clicking on following link:
Open Google Account Settings Pag
2. Now click on "Security" tab given in left-side pane. Scroll down on the page and you'll see "Connected applications and sites" section at the bottom of the page.
3. Click on "Manage access" button and it'll open a new page showing following information:Some applications that work outside a browser aren't yet compatible with 2-step verification and cannot ask for verification codes, for example: email programs including Outlook, Apple Mail, or Thunderbird, older Android smartphones. To use these applications, you need to generate an application-specific password. 4. Type any desired name in given text box and click on "Generate password" button.create_application_specific_password_google_account.pngThat's it. It'll immediately provide you a new password which can be used in any mail app or device to sign in.PS: If you want to remove or disallow any mail app or device to access your account, you can remove existing app password or revoke access from devices using the same account security settings pages as mentioned in above instructions.
how that helps good luck.

Gmail is a free Web mail service from Google that allows you to send and receive email.
Gmail features 5 gigabytes (GB) of storage and a patented search tool that allows you to easily search through and find individual emails.

Setting up Gmail accounts is easy and there is no limit to the number of Gmail accounts that you are allowed to have.

When you sign up for a Gmail account, you are also signing up for a Google account which will give you access to various Google products including iGoogle, Google Groups, Google Alerts, Google Product Search Shopping List and Personalized Search.

Open your Web browser and go to the Gmail website.
Click the link "Create an account."

Type the requested information in the appropriate fields.
Check the availability of your desired log in name by clicking "Check Availability."

If the user name you selected is not available, try another log in name.
Gmail will also suggest alternative email addresses that are currently available.

Click "I accept. Create my account."
Verify your telephone number.

Gmail requires a telephone verification to help prevent spam and fraudulent use of Gmail's service.

You can choose to receive a voice call from Google or a text message on your United States based cellular telephone.

Type you telephone number and click "Send verification code to my mobile phone."
Check your mobile phone for your verification code or answer your telephone and write down the verification code given in the recorded message.

Type the verification code in the text field labeled "Enter your code" and click "Verify."
Wait while Gmail sets up your new account.

Click the button "Show me my account."
You can now send and receive emails using your new Gmail account.

I write a response to an e-mail. When I hit send I get the password verification. When I put it in I get my mail but the response I sent has been eliminated. In other words I can't responding to any of...


One of the reasons why after composing your email and about to send, it opens a password verification. It can be that your response has been idle for a couple of minutes or you have no keyboard activity for quite a while before hitting the Send button.

If you are composing long emails, you can first compose it into notepad or wordpad and then if you're finished, copy and paste it on your message box. Then hit send.

Can receive emails but cannot send emails


Send problems. There are several common causes of problems with sending email:

  • Mail queued. If you appear to be able to send email but it never arrives, it may be in a queue. Some applications put email in a queue when you send it, and the user has to manually send all queued mail to actually transmit it. Check your File and Edit menus for any queues, and also check the status of the email in the Out mailbox to see if it was actually sent -- if not, send it again.

  • Send on check. This is a common problem -- many email servers are configured to use the password authentication involved with checking mail to allow the sending of mail, and therefore require clients to check for mail at the same time or just before sending mail. If you get an intermittent error message and can send at some times and not others, make sure the option "send on check" is enabled in your email settings. As a temporary fix, you can often solve the problem by manually checking for mail shortly (a few seconds or minutes) before sending mail. This problem can also produce the message "relaying not allowed" described below, for much the same reason.

  • Relaying not allowed. Many Internet access providers require clients within their network to use their own servers for sending mail, as a policy intended to cut down on email spammers sending spam through other provider's servers. If you have more than one email address and can download mail without problems from a POP account with a different domain name than is used by your Internet access provider, but get the error "Relaying not allowed" when you try to send, then you probably need to set the outgoing SMTP server address to the mail server of your Internet service provider, instead of your email provider. Search your Internet network provider's home page or call technical assistance to obtain the address of their SMTP server, and enter it in your email client settings (first copy and save your existing server setting in case you need to set it back). This error message can also be produced by the "send on check" issue described in the bullet above.

  • Server down. If you can do a successful connection check, and the above suggestions don't help, and a recipient continues to say that email sent from you does not arrive, and you are certain their address is spelled correctly, then one of the email servers between you and your destination is likely down. Blocked email is typically cached and sent when the missing server comes back up, usually within a few hours or days. If the problem persists and you can successfully send to other email addresses, then the email provider of your recipient is likely having a problem -- you should contact them by phone and ask them if they are getting email from anyone else, request they send an email to you, and if necessary suggest they do a connection check from their end to help diagnose the problem.
