    Is it possible to make such a program?

    A program in c++ that could, connect to an emial server, and anonymously send a number of e-mails to a certain person? Or something close to that effect?

    There are loads of threads on this (I remember even I have answered this on more than one occasion).......

    Try search the boards or even better read the RFCs on SMTP......

    Yes and no. To the dummy, they are anonymous. However, if you know how to read an email header, you will always be able to filter out the sender of the mail. With most mailservers, you don't get anonymous accounts. So anyone can track it to the mailserver. The mailserver will track it to you if the provider likes to stay in contact with the rest of the spam free world.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Exclamation Heh....

    One thing is, when u get into C/C++/ASM, u need to get out of this "Is it possible..." mindset, becouse everything on ur computer wuz written in C/C++/ASM, and obviously if u can think of a way to do it, itz possible, ur in the "big leages now", its not VB.

    To send an anonymous e-mail,

    Telnet to a mail server or any server that has port 25 open.

    Then type the following,
    ----

    mail from: [place a fake e-mail here]
    rcpt to: [The users e-mail goes here]
    data
    Hello, world!
    . // a period by it's self means that you want your message sent.

    ----

    Thats it.
