anonymous remailer

An organization that forwards e-mail anonymously stripping out the sender's name and e-mail address. Remailers are used by people that wish to express an opinion to newsgroups or to individuals without fear of excessive responses or retaliation. It is the same as dropping a letter in the post office without a return address. See Anonymizer.
