There is no such thing as 100% anonymous webmail, but you can get closer than what hotmail or yahoo will allow.

This sounds like an inappropriate question and response. What is the purpose of needing this?

The reason for this question is because of the new US legislation concerning privacy. I am not looking to setup a   mass mailer or anything like that. Just wantd to know if it was possible to setup an email service similar to yahoo or hotmail that could protect individuals privacy, and if so, what software is avaialble to do so.

You could setup a simple anonymous mailer using ASP and CDONTS, aslong as your server has CDONTS obviously.

I'm interested in something that could run from a web host/virtual host.

I guess "anonymous" was the wrong word to use. I am not wanting to send out anonymous emails, but rather provide a secure/private webmail service similar to hushmail or ziplip.
