internet posts with disguised email address?

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Jo-Anne, Jun 5, 2010.

    I just tried to post in Outlook Express to the newsgroup
    microsoft.public.security.homeusers and found that it and
    microsoft.public.security.virus are no longer available from Microsoft.
    Since I haven't yet set up another account, I was going to post my question
    through Google Groups. However, I noticed the warning there that my email
    address would become public if I posted. Is there any way to disguise one's
    email address in groups in Internet Explorer--as one can in OE?

    I'm using WinXP fully updated on all of my computers.

    Thank you!

    That's up to the forum you are using. It's not really an Internet
    Explorer issue since it doesn't know your e-mail address.

    But some (most?) forums require you to setup and account in order to
    post. It's up to the forum as to whether they hide your e-mail address
    and other information.

    I don't know about Google groups.

    Microsoft doesn't reveal your e-mail address in the forums that it
    hosts, such as at
    http://answers.microsoft.com

    Thank you, Michael! Google Groups says upfront that your email address will
    appear with your post. I guess it's time to set up some sort of way to do my
    posting in Outlook Express.

    Use a free 'throw-away' e-mail account - it helps to have one anyway.

    At this point, it would be easier to just sign up to a free usenet
    server.

    Try this news server, Jo-Anne. I just set it up and it carries the groups
    I had that were removed. You have to register with your real address, but
    you can still use your munged address when you post.

    That's the same one I use (though not for this post) - it has been

    Just as a word of appreciation, I have used eternal-september since it was
    called Motzarella and I can honestly say that it is the best of the free
    ones out there. There is a support/tech help group on that server and the
    owner (Ray Banana) is very quick to sort things out.

    Cheers...Heather

    Help, Bruce! I set up my Eternal-September account, and everything looked
    fine--but I can't post. I get "Outlook Express could not post your message.
    Subject 'Re: internet posts with disguised email address?', Account:
    'news.eternal-september.org', Server: 'news.eternal-september.org',
    Protocol: NNTP, Server Response: '441 From: address not in Internet syntax',
    Port: 119, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 441, Error Number: 0x800CCCA9."

    What did I do wrong?

    Thank you!

    Hi, again, Bruce,

    I had to delete my account name and password from Eternal-September in order
    to post from my old Microsoft account. Otherwise, nothing at all went
    through to the newsgroups. And I seem to have lost my Corel newsgroups
    completely. I get "unable to connect to the server" whenever I try to access
    the Corel newsgroups. Maybe two different issues? I'm lost!

    So create another newsgroup-posting Gmail account. Use it when you want
    to use Google Groups. Just because you created a Gmail account doesn't
    mean you have to poll it for new e-mails; however, an idle account will
    eventually expire but if you use it often enough for your newsgroup
    posts then your Gmail account remains active. You could also define a
    server-side filter to simply discard all e-mails sent to that
    newsgroups-only Gmail account to help Google not waste the disk space to
    store them.

    If you actually want to use the Gmail account to move offline some
    newsgroup discussion (i.e., rudely rip it away from the newsgroup to
    continue the discussion via e-mail), you could require that some special
    string be included in the Subject header. If an e-mail arrives in your
    mailbox without that passcode in the Subject then it gets immediately
    discarded. Users can see your instructions for including the passcode
    in the Subject in your signature but spambots roaming the newsgroups to
    harvest e-mail addresses can't follow the instructions in your
    signature.

    With a local NNTP client, you can munge your e-mail address. You can't
    do that when using Gmail's webnews-for-boobs interface to Usenet.
    You're stuck using whatever Gmail account you logged on with. So use a
    separate Gmail account used only for when you, to get grouped with all
    their other GG boobs, decide to use their webnews client. Then add a
    signature if and when you want to note in some of your posts that you
    are willing to take the discussion offline via e-mail and that those
    respondents must insert a passcode string in the Subject header.

    You would post using:

    From: <yournewsgrouponlyaccount>@gmail.com
    <body of post>
    --
    To send e-mail, append "##JA78@@" to Subject; otherwise, e-mails are
    immediately discarded.

    I used an example passcode string above. Use whatever you feel like but
    which is highly unlikely to be a legitimate string you ever see in the
    Subject header. Don't make it too long to irritate real humans that
    want to send you e-mail but just long enough to ensure it is a string
    that is not likely to ever appear in legitimate e-mails. For the
    server-side filter, use something like:

    Matches: -{Subject:##JA78@@}

    With a real client, there wouldn't be a problem using non-alphanumeric
    characters in the string. I believe that Google strips out those
    characters in a search (and why Google searching sucks when you *do*
    want to specify a non-alphanumeric in a search, like "--i++" when you
    want to find articles mentioning pre-decrementing and then
    post-incrementing a variable). So you'll probably have to use something
    other than the example "##JA78@@". Maybe your moniker spelled
    backwards, like "ennaoj". I'm not big on using Gmail nor on Google's
    special search parameters so maybe someone else can come up with a
    better passcode on which Google's search will actually work.

    As I recall, Google Groups doesn't let you configure a signature to
    automatically add to your posts when using their webnews-for-boobs
    client, so you'll have to add it when you want to note how Usenetters
    can send you e-mail. If you use a 3rd party clipboard manager, like
    ClipMate or ClipMagic, you can save canned content that you can later
    paste into any document, like your newsgroup posts.

    Even if some asshole submits your newsgroups-only e-mail address to some
    spammers mailing list, those spammers won't know to add the passcode to
    the Subject header so their spam gets immediately discarded from your
    Gmail account by your server-side rule. Basically you are creating an
    exclusively accessed e-mail account where only e-mails that are
    passcoded are allowed to remain in the mailbox. They'll arrive but get
    immediately trashed.

    So if you feel compelled to get lumped in with the Google Grouping boob
    crowd by using Google's webnews-for-boobs interface to Usenet, I'd
    suggest creating a separate Gmail account just for when you post to
    newsgroups. If you never want to take discussions offline via e-mail
    then simply never bother to look at what e-mails are in that Gmail
    account, or use a server-side filter that discards every e-mail that
    gets received there. An easy way would be to add 2 filters: one that
    looks for "a" in the Subject and another that looks for "Doesn't have:
    subject:a" so you're looking for a Subject that does and doesn't have
    "a" which is impossible to satisfy both). If you do want to use that
    special-use Gmail account to take discussions offline then use the
    passcode idea to only get e-mails from real humans, not bots or mailing
    lists, because they would've had to follow your instructions in your
    signature to append the passcode.

    Why the hell would you want to use Google Groups to post? You already
    know that many users already killfile the Google Groupers since that is
    a source of spam in newsgroups along with the general tendency of those
    posters submitting knee-jerk posts and who are too lazy to do any of
    their own research and want us to change their diapers for them, too.
    The webnews-for-boobs interface providing by Google Groups is nowhere as
    potent as using a real newsreader client on your own host connecting to
    an NNTP server. Why not use a free NNTP server to access Usenet, like
    Albasani or Eternal-September, or a really cheap one, like
    individual.net ($16USD/yr)? Microsoft's NNTP server only carried the
    microsoft.public.* newsgroups but the others (free or paid) carry those
    groups and much more. The free NNTP servers only carry text groups but
    then so did the free Microsoft NNTP server.

    I just set my account up a few hours ago, so I don't know how much help I
    can be. But..................

    Did you create an account with a real e-mail address?

    Did you get a confirmation with your user ID and a temporary password?

    Did you enter the user ID and password in Tools | Accounts | Mail |
    Properties | Server Tab?

    Did you check Remember Password?

    What did you use for a munged domain? Some are not acceptable.

    ES should not affect Corel any more than MMSNews did. As a matter of fact,
    you mentioned having to delete the ES account PW to send from MSNews. I
    have both running. ES should not change anything about your other servers
    when installed.

    Did you set it up like a new server? Tools | Accounts | Add | Newsgroup
    Account............etc?

    Yes, I did use a real email address.

    I did--and then I changed the password online, and the change was accepted.


    > Did you enter the user ID and password in Tools | Accounts | Mail |

    Not sure exactly what I did there, now that I deleted it. The Server Tab
    wants an Account Name. Is that the user ID I got in the emailed
    confirmation? I thought at this point maybe it should be my email address. I
    can try the user ID to see if that works--if you think that might be the
    issue. This is the first news server that wants this kind of setup, so I
    didn't have anything to look at.

    Yep, that's how I set it up. I suppose it's possible something has happened
    to the Corel server. I hadn't checked the newsgroups in a few weeks...

    I'm guessing that as far as MMSNews, something I did in the Account
    Name/Password setup for the E-S server screwed it up, given that when I
    deleted that info entirely, MMSNews worked again.

    In the Server Ta==tab:

    The account name is:
    news.eternal-september.org

    The user ID and PW is what was e-mailed to you.

    Do not check Secure PW Authentication.

    Hi, again, Bruce. In the Server tab, news.eternal-september.org is the
    server name. I then checked the box "This server requires me to log on,"
    which opened the Account Name and password. Should I NOT have checked that
    box? It's unchecked now, and I can't get or send any posts. If it SHOULD be
    checked, then I have to fill in the Account Name, which I'm guessing is
    something particular to me, since it's followed by the password.

    Jo-Anne
