    I just made a google group account and successfully posted messages to a
    newsgroup. But unfortunately, my real email-address has been put in the
    header of the message. This means that email address will be spammed -
    sooner or later.
    Two questions:
    1) is it possible to put a fake email address in the header (if using google
    groups)? If so, how?
    2) if 1) is not possible, what other webbased newsgroup services are
    available. Preferably free!

    Thanks a lot.

    Not that I know of which sucks :(
    One option is to either sign up with a forwarding service such as (free) or create a junk account with hotmail or
    yahoo (both free) and use that for posting on Google Groups and just
    use a signature to tell people to reply to another address.

    I remember reading something about Google Groups 2 doing something
    about this.

    All they really need to do is enable posting using

    Thanks a lot, Morgan and Wizard, I'll subscribe to such a forwarding
    service. BTW, I understand that "google groups 2" is still under
    development? If it's not under development, what's its address?
    Anyway, "" does not offer what I want, cuz that's the
    website I've used.
