    22Using email securely has been a challenge since shortly after its conception and continues to be to this day. By utilising Tor to create and connect to accounts, users can obfuscate their own IP and make themselves unknown to providers and hosts, as well as secure potentially deanonymising email headers. This takes a portion of trust out of the hands of third parties.

    4 While there are plenty of options for webmail and email client software, they are only as private as the developers and providers have decided to build them. The only officially supported option for torifying email is by using [wiki:doc/TorifyHOWTO/EMail/Thunderbird Thunderbird] in conjunction with [wiki:torbirdy Torbirdy]. While simply using webmail in the Tor Browser Bundle can ''potentially'' be safe, many popular webmail software bundles require Javascript. This can be dangerous. Even if a provider themselves has only benevolent and transparent motives, there's no way to verify a malicious party will not gain control and act against users.
