How to Get an Untraceable Email Account

With the evolution of the Web, e-mail stands as the communication method of choice in a digitally connected world. Standard e-mail services, though, offer very little protection for users that need to send anonymous messages. When you send a message via a regular e-mail account, tech-savvy receivers can trace the route of the message using IP address information contained in the header along with other tracking tools available on the Web. Therefore, if remaining anonymous is a primary concern, when you send a message, you should use an untraceable e-mail account.
