    148148You could either use an SMTP service running on a nonstandard port (there are a few places that provide these), or the simplest method - use a webmail account instead.  (Remember that using plain POP3 is a really bad idea, especially over Tor - I run an exit node and see dozens of valid cleartext usernames and passwords going to POP3 servers all the time.)

     150[http://archives.seul.org/or/talk/Sep-2008/msg00025.html As of September 2008, the default exit policy] in the alpha versions no longer blocks ports 465 and 587, so you should be able to submit email anonymously by now.

    150152'''How would one route his email through Tor? My email client (Microsoft Entourage for Mac OS X) has support for SOCKS and TUNNEL proxies, but setting my mail proxy for SOCKS 127.0.0.1 port 9050 or 8118 both produces errors when trying to proxy to SSL SMTP servers via port 25. What am I missing here? Also, setting this proxy doesn't seem to affect incoming POP3 SSL mail, but only affects outgoing mail, albeit without success. A little guidance on how to configure POP3 email clients to use Tor would be much appreciated!'''
