The anonymous remailer's administrator can be contacted and made aware
of the "abusive" email sent through it.

If you did not send such an email, please ignore this message.

This remailer is a free service that allows individuals including crime
victims, domestic violence victims, persons in recovery, and others,
such as those living under oppressive regimes, to communicate
confidentially in a manner that ensures their privacy under even the
most adverse conditions.

To obtain information on how you can use this service, please send an
email with subject "remailer-help" to <mixmaster at remailer.privacy.at>.

Should you have received an unwelcome message through this service or to
report problems with this service, please contact the Administrator at
<abuse at remailer.privacy.at>.

Thank you for your interest in secure and private communications,
