Akapost Offers Email Proxying

ScreenshotWe’ve written before about various ways to keep your email address confidential when sending mail. Now there’s another alternative: akapost, which provides simple email proxy services. To sign up for an account, you provide your real account, and an alias. Then to send mail, you just append “.akapost.com” to the recipient address. Akapost intercepts the message and builds a new one from your alias account, complete with headers that do not give away the origin, and sends it along.

For the return trip, the recipient can email you back at your akapost address, and it will get forwarded back. A free account lets you have one alias and one address; paid plans add additional names and even the ability to use akapost with your own domain name.
