How do you manage to send e-mails? I'd like to send e-mails in an

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
Truecrypt volume.

I'm just throwing this out there - haven't used / investigated it. 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.

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.
