    1111The recommended method for using Thunderbird with Tor is by installing the [https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/torbirdy TorBirdy] add-on. Prior to its existence, safely Torifying Thunderbird was not a very simple task. Thankfully however, Torbirdy has made the process incredibly streamlined and easy.
     
    1313Other than providing secure connectivity to the network, it also introduces several other security enhancing features such as rendering all emails in plaintext, disabling account auto-configuration and offering preset secure templates for setup.
