How hide my IP when posting to Yahoo Groups?

    I have registered at a Yahoo group. Now I want to post to it without
    showing my IP address. Can this be done simply?

    I tried a few anonymizing web sites (to browse to Yahoo and Logon and then
    access to the group). However the anonymizing web sites lacked some
    technical feature or another which Yahoo seemed to need. So this failed.

    I could use an anonymous email page like Anonymouse and email the Yahoo
    Group using SMTP. The trouble is that, in the past, Yahoo required a POP3
    READ (to get the password) before doing an SMTP WRITE. Am not sure if
    that's still the arrangement because that was before Yahoo mail went over
    to SSL.

    So how can I post anonymously to Yahoo groups?

    Hash: SHA256

    What I'd do is use a tor browser to sign up for the group and
    for an email address I'd give it a nym. In fact, have done
    it before. Trick is making certain your nym has working
    reply blocks.

    This is a scam. Same folks brought us privacy.lie, this is the domain
    they changed to after they were exposed. As the other poster said, try
    Tor. If you do use a privacy service try someone with a trusted history
    like cotse, ultimate anonymity, or anonymizer.

  6. Is another of many bullshit "privacyservices" that doesn't seem to realize
    that in today's world, "offshore" is meaningless.

    Users can be fully traced once payments of any kind are involved.
    Even in countries claiming to operate privacy Laws - when a criminal
    offence has been committed or facilitated by a company you have
    no chance.
