I am using Tor Browser on Windows. When I watch TCP ports opened by tor.exe I see 3 remote connections. One to remote host shown in Vidalia as first relay, it's port is 8080. Two other connections are to other hosts with remote ports 9001 and 110 (POP protocol port).

DNS shows POP connection from tor.exe goes to email service. Is it normal?

My tor.exe connects to (, POP protocol) and each time it connects to Tor network. These IPs stay the same. Is it normal?!

Yes, this is normal. Learn about Tor, please (tor-talk mailing list or #tor on the OFTC irc network)
