Thunderbird (5, maybe 3?) has a selection under Options to "Encrypt this
message." Have NOT read what type encryption or effectiveness. A very
brief search a few wks ago turned up nothing.
How do you manage to send e-mails? I'd like to send e-mails in an
anonymous way but most of the webmails make it very difficult....
Try to use an anonymous e-mail account and connect to that account via
TOR. E-mails shoud be encrypted locally (with GnuPG) so that servers do
not see the unencrypted text. Mail shoul be stored locally on a
In compose window, when click the "use encryption," if you haven't set
it up, will get a popup, "You need to set up one or more personal
certificates before you can use this security feature. Would you like to
do so now?" That's as far as I got investigating it.
Enigmail addon for Thunderbird is fairly popular & uses GnuPG for
encryption. I've been thinking of trying it myself.
