Protonmail claims to be highly secure, and like others said - it would need a subpoena or more to reveal the sender. If I remember correctly, their server is located in Switzerland. In contrary to the US, EU takes data protection and cyber security very serious.
I use it myself, although for other reasons.
Yes it was a letter to the editor sent using my computer. It criticized the Sheriffs Dept for their lack of training. A man told a Deputy this guy was a child molester, except it ended up not being true. The poor guy was arrested due to an accusation the Deputy chose to believe withoug any proof.

It's clear from these posts they aren't going to track me down that easily nor will try to.

You usually have to break a law for there to be a subpoena which is why I mentioned it.
