    16 == Quick Setup Guide ==
    17 This short guide should help you to set up your Thunderbird email client to send and fetch email via Tor. It can be used for both new and existing email accounts in Thunderbird.
    18 
    19 Please bear in mind that email accounts that have been used without Tor before offer '''less''' privacy/anonymity/weaker pseudonyms than email accounts that have always been accessed with Tor. But nevertheless, TorBirdy is still useful for existing accounts or real-name email addresses. For example, if you are looking for location anonymity -- you travel a lot and don't want to disclose all your locations by sending emails -- TorBirdy works wonderfully!

    2116TorBirdy works with SMTP and IMAP/POP3 but POP3 is recommended over IMAP because POP3 is a much simpler protocol and less likely to have or introduce any new sketchy features.
