    There are programs that directly send the email to the SMTP server, therefore can specify any subject/sender name/sender email/date/time.
    I have seen one made in VB, it used subcalssing to deal with the SMTP.
    I will look for one online, and will put the link here if i find any ...

    most of thos programs still send ur ip address

    the best way is to just get a free internet mail account from some web site

    if your really paranoid you could proxy into the web site before you log on to your email account

    You can send email to SMTP servers yourself really easily: telnet to port 25 on the desired server

    Code (Text):
    HELO foo.com
    MAIL FROM: [email]sender@foo.com[/email]
    RCPT TO: [email]recipient@bar.com[/email]
    From: fromline
    To: toline
    Subject: sub
