He means onion MTAs directly communicating in order to deliver the message to
its destination:
https:// en.wikipedia .org/wiki/Mail_transfer_agent
https:// tools.ietf .org/html/rfc5321#section-3.6
https:// tools.ietf .org/html/rfc5321#section-5

The implicit promise is that if the message originates from and is destined to
an onion address, it never leaves the Tor network.

He means "OnionMail": http:// en.onionmail .info/directory.html

They are mail servers running behind onion services. Not necessarily "web".
