How to create and maintain anonymous email accounts

Don’t let what happened to the director (actually, former director) of a very powerful government agency make you think that engaging in anonymous email activities is impossible. It is, though, as with all things involving digital security, it can never be 100%.

But that should not keep you from trying to keep your email communications private and anonymous, because if you take the proper steps, you can create and maintain anonymous email accounts that will be almost impossible to trace back to you.

The steps you need to take are:

If you mess up just once and log into the pseudonymous account from your real IP address, chances are that your webmail provider will keep linkable records about you forever.

For instance, if prompted for an email account, do not use another real account during signup; use a throwaway address instead.

After that:
