In order to manage your e-mails anonymously via Tor Onion Router, you need the following software:

  1. The Tor Browser Bundle, which contains a Tor daemon that runs concurrently with the Tor Browser. Click on the link and select the package that fits your operating system, then download and install on your computer.
  2. Important: Please configure the tor daemon of the Tor Browser Bundle as recommended in our Tor Browser configuration manual. The connection security is similar to those in a Tor Hidden Service scenario but avoids Onion-host names and therefore, the SSL certificate errors experienced before.
  3. The e-mail client Mozilla Thunderbird with the add-on Tor Birdy installed. If you are already using Thunderbird as your e-mail client, simply open the built-in Add-On manager, search for Tor Birdy, and install. Linux users can also use their system's package manager to install the related package xul-ext-torbirdy.
