Re: pop3 and smtp over ssh

If you use the port forwarding feature of ssh then you don't need to
worry about the exit nodes (other then that they allow ssh). once the
ports have been forwarded by ssh you'd connect to them on localhost and
they would get tunnelled through the ssh connection so all the tor
network would see is the ssh connection going on.

hope this helps
