Re: Tor and Thunderbird: Outgoing Email Unsafe?

ps: am i correct that if i use a webbased email account(for example gmail) without pop3 and I use (Torified)Firefox to acces it I CAN send emails out without the receiver being able to see my personal IP etc?
I dont mind of they se my email address ofcourse as they need that to reply to me, just dont want them to be able to view my info.

Yes. TOR and (yahoo|hotmail|gmail|$whatever) is an anonymous way to go about it. Just make sure you use a totally separate browser profile (eg: start firefox with -ProfileManager) as to not cross-contaminate cookies, etc. and do everything regarding that email account -- including signup -- using TOR, and never access it outside of TOR, nor access anything else with that browser profile.
