 > Have you looked at TorBirdy with Gmail?

 Previously I tried to use Gmail via Thunderbird with Tor, which resulted
 in an error message. I then had to log into Gmail and confirm it was me
 requesting access. Following the procedure forced me to enter a phone-
 number and later on I had to change my password. I haven't tried lately,
 but previously Thunderbird could not fetch emails. Maybe I have to try it

 > [...] Transparent Torification mode in TorBirdy 0.1.1 [...] Does this
 sound useful?

 This sounds indeed useful.

 > Also, some users use different profiles.

 After all using two separate profiles is much safer. The risk to mess
 things up it not as high, I guess.

 I'm going to close this ticket as there is a way get what I intended and
 it's safer to have two profiles. Please re-open if anyone disagrees and
 has valid points that require such an 'enhancement'.
