Like Craigslist. the email is a relay. No one posts their name. That sort of thing?

Hi Jake,

Our system is like the “old Craigslist” when it was originally created in 2008. That’s when Craigslist held the original poster’s email private for the first email only. That’s the behavior we have now. A true double-blind email system, as Craigslist has today, would require the use of a private email server for AWPCP to handle the incoming and outgoing email mappings. That’s unfortunately beyond the scope of what AWPCP can really do within WordPress.
