Re: [tor-talk] Codename: TorBirdy

If you don't have access to the email on the other end you wont be
able to verify the headers. One way you might achieve your goal would
be to access the TorBirdy preferences and using the Test Proxy
Settings feature. You can access the preferences from the addon page
in Thunderbird or by clicking on the green text at the lower-right and
choosing Open TorBirdy Preferences. After the warning you'll see the
test button at the lower right of the next dialog box. The test will
load the site, check.torproject.org, and verify that the external ip
you're using is a Tor exit. This would mean the mail you send will
also come from this exit.

However, it doesn't verify the localhost proxy is operational first.
Just so you're aware. A way to ensure this isn't a problem is to make
sure the "Use recommended proxy settings for TorBirdy (Tor)" option is
selected *before* trying the button.
