List of reliable remailers

   I operate a remailer pinging service which collects detailed
information about remailer features and reliability.

   To use it, just finger [email protected]

   There is also a Web version of the same information, plus lots of
interesting links to remailer-related resources, at:

   This information is used by premail, a remailer chaining and PGP
encrypting client for outgoing mail. For more information, see:

   For the PGP public keys of the remailers, finger
[email protected]

This is the current info:

                                 REMAILER LIST

   This is an automatically generated listing of remailers. The first
   part of the listing shows the remailers along with configuration
   options and special features for each of the remailers. The second
   part shows the 12-day history, and average latency and uptime for each
   remailer. You can also get this list by fingering
   [email protected]

Groups of remailers sharing a machine or operator:
(cyber mix)

The alpha and nymrod nymservers are down due to abuse. However, you
can use the cyber nymserver. The nym.alias.net server will be listed
soon. See http://www.cs.berkeley.edu/~raph/n.a.n.html for details.

403 Permission denied errors have been caused by a flaky disk on the
Berkeley WWW server. Hopefully, this is fixed by now.

The penet remailer is closed.

          A major class of remailers. Supports Request-Remailing-To:
          A variant of the cpunk style. Uses Anon-Send-To: instead.
          The third class of remailers (at least for right now). Uses
          X-Anon-To: in the header.
          Remailer supports encryption with PGP. A period after the
          keyword means that the short name, rather than the full email
          address, should be used as the encryption key ID.
          Supports ## pasting, so anything can be put into the headers of
          outgoing messages.
          Remailer always kills subject header, even in non-pgp mode.
          Remailer always preserves subject header, even in pgp mode.
          Supports Matt Ghio's Latent-Time: option.
          Supports Matt Ghio's Cutmarks: option.
          Post to Usenet using Post-To: or Anon-Post-To: header.
          Encrypt responses in reply blocks using Encrypt-Key: header.
          Accepts only pgp encrypted messages.
          Can accept messages in Mixmaster format.
          Attempts to foil traffic analysis by reordering messages. Note:
          I'm relying on the word of the remailer operator here, and
          haven't verified the reord info myself.

          Remailer has been known to monitor contents of private email.
          Remailer has been known to filter messages based on content. If
          not listed in conjunction with mon, then only messages destined
          for public forums are subject to filtering.
