    1818This short guide should help you to setup your Thunderbird email client to send and fetch email via Tor. It can be used for both new and existing email accounts in Thunderbird.

    20 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 have always been accessed with Tor. But nevertheless, TorBirdy is still useful for exiting 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!

    2222TorBirdy 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.

    24 This guide does not cover email account configuration (inserting the correct mailserver domain, port, username, ...). JonDo has a [https://anonymous-proxy-servers.net/en/help/thunderbird.html guide] that details configuring your email accounts for use with TorBirdy, among other helpful information.

    127127TorBirdy works fine with Gmail and there should be no issues except in rare cases where certain exit nodes cause Gmail to lock an account (and therefore POP/IMAP access) until the user logs in through the web interface and enters a CAPTCHA.
