    Can I hide my e-mail address from recipients


    My question is whether I could hide my own e-mail address from the person I am sending the e-mail to, the same way I can hide my caller`s ID in a mobile phone?
    I have been selling a few things on-line on craiglist, & this site has the facillity of hiding my e-mail, so the people that answer to my add can send me an e-mail, but without knowing my real e-mail address.
    The problem is that when I reply to their messages, they can see my e-mail address.
    I am with Yahoo. Is there any way of doing this that is not just creating a new e-mail address just for this sort of thing?
    If Yahoo doesn`t, does Windows Mail or Outlook have a feature to hide my own e-mail address?

    Thanks in advance!!

    With Windows Live, I think, that if you go into tools>accounts. It will show reply to address. Try putting something like donotsendhere.com etc. See if that works.

    Go into the Properties of your account, that is where you'll find the part for doing what richc46 advised.
