This is also exactly what somebody would say if they were running the
service as a honeypot. If TorMail is run by anonymous operators, then we
don't even have their reputations to rely on.

Are the operators really anonymous though? If you send an email from
TorMail to a GMail account for example, then it will contain the real
Internet IP address of a server which TorMail routes out from... Given
the IP address, it should be possible to discover the operator(s).
