Mail Forwarding Makes News?
from the silly-reporters dept
InternetNews is reporting about this amazing service that a 14 year old has created: it lets people forward messages to a different email address without the sender knowing where it’s being forwarded to. Um, guys, email forwarding? Not a big thing. Really. Anyone can do it. Many people do. Want a techdirt email forwarding address? Just as good, and I swear no one will be able to tell where your email is really going!

Now masking where e-mail is COMING FROM, that's ha
Of course, this script kiddie’s service doesn’t do that.
It’s sad that anyone would think this is news. Lots of ISPs give you a redirected e-mail address free with domain registration, and have for years. We use one to send email@example.com to whoever’s answering e-mail this year for OTAKON (an anime convention I help run).
It IS handy, though, especially for an organization where people switch jobs from year to year.
