I'm after a little bit of revenge on someone and want to p1ss this person off by flooding his email address.

Any links to sites that will allow this?

With the greatest respect, if you have had to come on here to ask what kind of application you would use to do this, then I would assume that you are a novice. If you launch these kind of attacks without knowing what you are doing (ie how to manipulate IP traffic and hide your tracks etc), then you are likely to cause a great deal of trouble and you will probably end up with your ISP account being disabled and possibly blacklisted. Is it worth it?

Yeah I am a novice in this respect.

I don't want to overload or 'do in' this person's account, just annoy the **** as he has done to me in a similar vein.

Been getting loads of **** crap in my inbox and merely want to return the favour, but not with ****.

I'm no serial spammer and have no intention of becoming one.

It was more of a light hearted request to give me tips on sites that may be of help.

If you believe that this'll work you're sadly deluded. You may as well just change the "from" address and believe you're "anonymous".

Mailbombing is illegal (computer misuse act), it will be traced and ain't a good idea.

look up ghostmail, then get this http://www.secure-proxy.com/ IP masquerading and ssl the easy way.

all free.

I will not condone or advise what you are thinking or going to do, but here are some tools to do it.

When I had a company "steal" 40 from me for products they refused to supply and would not refund as they were based in Germany, I made sure no one else could be scammed or contact them for a "long" period of time.

I cannot see how this is illegal, if the internet is not policed in this way it cannot be policed in people protecting themselves or protecting others. And "spammers" espicially **** ones deserve everything they get.

Cool

I did to an old friend of mine using a cron job on my unix machine.

The only problem with mailbombing someone is they just set up a rule to automatically return your mail so you end up with it an dthey are not adversely effected so mail bombing is a waste of time unless the recipient is a techno muppet and doesn't know how to setup a rule.

yes but it gets to a point where they cant do anything as there email gateway is overloaded with incoming mail and in most cases their email server or client cant do a thing let alone process a rule and send it back to a dummy address (ghostmail).

BT now limit one of my accounts to sending 500 emails a minute. because of the said incident. but its only on one of their smtp servers. nd I have acounts with about 6 isp's as well as direct access to a backbone access netowrk through work. 600mb STM4 anybody !!!.

Giving him a slap isn't an option, unfortunately.

He lives in Thailand.
