My company is looking for an email account that our employees can email to and express themselves anonymously with comment suggestions, complaints etc. We dont need encryption or to be untraceable. How can I setup an internal remailer? or does anyone has a scrip or program they can recomend for me? I will really appreciate it. I'm under the gun here so the sooner the better PLEASE?
We use MS Exchange 2007 and Outlook 2003 and 2007.

Hi,
Pretty simple...I am sure you have some Internal Webserver.
Now goto This link :: http://www.w3schools.com/asp/asp_send_email.asp
and create a simple form for example http://www.nitingupta.in/contact/
and paste this code there....
Now the Recipient has to be the new Mailbox that you create where mails wil automatically go
Hope this helps
Thanks
Nitin

Hi, EsmeraldaAmaya.

Assuming you have a web server, the quickest and simplest solution is to create a web page for submitting these kinds of things.  FrontPage has a component that'll send an email and the sender's address would be the address of the page not the person who filled it in.

Why not just create a mailbox and give everyone permissions to send to and send as? For example, create a mailbox called "Suggestions". Then create a Security Group called "Employees". Assign all the employees to that group. Give the group "Send as" permissions on the mailbox. Employees can then send an email from their Outlook account with "Suggestions@whatever.com" as the From Address and send the mail to Suggestions@whatever.com as well.

Wow, you guys are good. I'm going to try all, but right now I'm going to start with what seems the easiest and fastest for me. I follow MrLeonardB suggestion created an account and gave everyone "send as" permissions. I'm a member of the everyone group so when I test it I did what you said in the from field I put the email address of the mailbox I created and in the to field I put the same address but I receive an undeliverable message with an error message "message@email.org You are not allowed to send this message because you are trying to send on behalf of another sender without permission to do so. Please verify that you are sending on behalf of the correct sender, or ask your system administrator to help you get the required permission"

ON the on behalf of section of the mailbox I created you cannot add groups only individual user and we have about 1000 user. I added my name to be able to send on behalf of and when I send the message the message is receive as "message@email.org on behalf of myemail addess" that is one of the things we don't want because the point is to be receive without knowing who sent it. Any thought? Thank for your time guys

When you granted the Everyone Group permissions on the mailbox, did you grant them "Send as" permissions from the "Security" tab of the User Account associated with the mailbox, or did you grant them "Send on Behalf of"...from the "Exchange General" > "Deivery Options" settings?

We have Exchange 2007 so I created the account using Exchange Management Console. Once created I right click on it and selected "Manage Send As Permissions" then I added the everyone group in it. Since I'm a member of the everyone group I tested. In the from field I put the email address of the mailbox I created and in the to field I put the same address Like you suggested then I got the error saying I need to have send on behalf of permissions. There is no security tab on that account. I double-clicked the account using AD and there I see "Exchange Advanced" tab and "Mailbox Rights" but when I click on it there is no Send As Permissions. I see "Delete Mailbox storage" read Permissions" "Change Permissions" "Take ownership.

I then Checked the send on behalf of permissions, but when you click on add it only shows you individual accounts It doesn't let you add groups(for example the everyone group) so what I did is I added my account only to be able to send on behalf of that account. What I found out is that it defeated the purspose because once again In the from field I put the email address of the mailbox I created and in the to field I put the same address. But when I checked the Mailbox of the account I created the message I had sent to had "message@email.org on behalf of myemail addess" that is one of the things we don't want because the point is to be receive without knowing who sent it. I hope you can understand me. I'm bad at try to explain things and I apologize for that.
