I think, many users use or like to use TOR for email to. 
I mean the connections for looking into the mailbox, the ports 995 and 465. It 
comes with not much traffic.

I think, it is an important anonymity feature for my communication and  it is 
possible, open this ports on an exit server too. 

Please remember, TOR is not only important for surfing. I understand your 
thinking of the higher amounts of bandwidth by minority of ptp-users, but 
there are other protokolls like POP3, IRC too.
