Re: [tor-talk] TorBirdy seems to connect to the same exit node again and again

If I would like to suggest to add a warning to the "Before using
TorBirdy", where would be the right place to do so?

I am not sure I understand you correctly:

Are you referring to the warning message I got?

Would you define failure to use an exit as a) not being able to send
emails over this exit and therefor establishing a connection to a new
exit or as b) when I get a warning saying "blocked using mail.badip.de"?
Because from how I understand this, and please correct if I am wrong,
TorBirdy might connect to a different exit, when the current exit
doesn't support the port I am using.
