I have no problems sending e-mail over the tor network. The used
SMTP-servers provide SSL-encryption for SMTP (port 486) or TLS encrypted
submission (port 587). It seems, for these ports are exit nodes available.
I use Thunderbird with Privoxy+TOR as proxy and the following tor
related options in the privoxy config:
forward-socks4a / localhost:9050 .
I got never a timeout over more the 3 month.
