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

   To use it, just finger remailer-list at

   There is also a Web version of the same information, at:

   This information is used by premail, a remailer chaining and PGP
encrypting client for outgoing mail, which is available at:

   For the PGP public keys of the remailers, as well as some help on
how to use them, finger at

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
   remailer-list at

catalyst at is _not_ a remailer.
lmccarth at is _not_ a remailer.

JPUNIX.COM offers a domain hiding service for remailers. Send email to 
perry at for more information. NOTE: JPUNIX.COM itself does not 
run a remailer. All subdomains of on this list are remailers 
that are not physically located on

Use "premail -getkeys pgpkeys at" to get PGP keys
for the remailers. Fingering this address works too.

   Options and features

          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.

          Remailer does not like messages encoded with MIT PGP 2.6. Other
          versions of PGP, including 2.3a and 2.6ui, work fine.

          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.
          Accepts only pgp encrypted messages.

          Encrypt responses in relpy blocks using Encrypt-Key:
