Hi all!
new here
I have a simple question I think is it possible to send an e-mail to an ip address without knowing the peoples e-mail address? and if so how?
A friend of mine told me this was possible but did not explain how
thank you

this sounds impossible

maybe if you have already received an email from this person and need to match the IP to an address, it would be possible

but even then, you are sending the email to an email address

Well sort of.

I suppose you could do something like [email protected] which equates to [email protected]

However, I believe the mail server would be set to look at the entire address before it delivered to the appropriate user.

I'm sure you've got more than one email address....if you don't, go to gmail or yahoo and create one then test it out. It'll either work or it won't. 😀
