I am not sure I know what you are asking. By default Tor does not
ordinary permit sending of email because the default is for Tor
nodes to not allow mail to exit on port 25, which is the standard port
for email. 

It is possible to configure email clients to work with Tor, and
that may require additional software..
However, there are subtleties and security implications of this.
There have been discussions recently about that on the or-talk
mailing list. See
under the threads
   Tor-compatible secure email systems
   Using Gmail (with Tor) is a bad idea

Your question is actually better addressed to that list since many
people may respond to you. onion-info just goes to me at this point,
and I'm overwhelmedly busy and unlikely to respond further than
this. You will need to subscribe if you want to post future messages
to it. See http://archives.seul.org/or/talk/ to subscribe.

Hope that helps,
