Hide your IP address from recipients or from your ISP? Possibly if you give some info about specifically why you want to hide your IP address in email, someone could make suggestions based on your goals. Are you trying to hide your IP address, or communicate securely (not the same). Latter can be achieved by many methods - some quite simple, like encrypting a text doc & attaching to email, or using some email service that uses encryption - like Hush Mail.

Remailers wouldn't fit since they wouldn't allow to receive messages. In
addition, I'd like to host a local mail server. I think tor could help,
but would correspondents need to be use tor in order to email me?
on any internet communication that's private / secure, both parties (or a user & a website) both need to use the same technology or "privacy software," if both want to have same security / privacy. I'm really not sure about the hiding IP address when using email over Tor, (others more experienced should know), but if there is a need for your correspondents to also hide their IP's, they'd also have to use some service or software. They wouldn't HAVE to use Tor, but if they don't use something, their real address will be visible to email servers / ISPs.

would this need to be configured. I use evolution, so I'd prefer to use
it for this.
Check out Tor article https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/TheOnionRouter/TorifyHOWTO/EMail. It doesn't cover evolution, but would give some tips. Check out section on Thunderbird.
