They are encrypted from and to the server. The server knows all voices
and mixes them. Therefore its better when the server runs in a secure
place, its not end-to-end encryption, no client to client encryption.

Yes, that was the point.

You can use mumble to talk to people you already know and trust. But you
can't talk to strangers, reveal your voice and think thats really secure
because of Tor.
