Yes, I suspect you are right. No good reason for sending anonymous emails that have attachments.

 Use web components to submit the mail through hotmail.

Anonymous mail??? You can't send such a mail because the server will log your IP. I tested it with PHP and change my name to "abc<abc@web.com>". You name and email address isn't there but almost your IP !!! Another problem is that you want to send an attachment: an attachment without a "from" person will be filtered by some mail servers and will return to you with a message like:
"This E-Mail consists of attachments which could damage your system. Read the information about the "I love you" virus".

bye, TDS.

Use the Winshoes components (indy) from www.nevrona.com
The Delphi demo's show how to send e-mails. The 'sent from' box can have any text so the mail can appear to be from anybody. e.g. anybody@anywhere.com or anything else you like. of course if the recipient replies the e-mail address will be invalid.

Regards
Paul.
