    9090Do not use any e-mail clients if you are not absolutely sure what you are doing. Many points listed under [https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorBOX/ApplicationWarningsAndNotes#Web-browser Web-browser] are also valid here. TorButton for Thunderbird is unfortunately just an idea and no one has started working on it. It's unknown which mail client is safe for Tor. In meanwhile stick to webmail through [https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorBOX/ApplicationWarningsAndNotes#Web-browser Web-browser]. Deactivate html and pictures in your webmail settings. Pure text mails are safer and stop [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_bug Web bug's]. Prefer to encrypt your connection to your webmailer (either using SSL or hidden service). It's also recommend to encrypt your mails end-to-end using GPG.

    92 Torifying Mozilla Thunderbird is definitely harder then "just use socks4a", first probable thing to leak would be the flash plugin. Many things mentioned in [https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser/design/ The Design and Implementation of the Tor Browser [DRAFT]] also apply for Mozilla Thunderbird. Until there is an official Tor mailclient, you unfortunately have to stick with webmail.
