you can use a plugin for thunderbird which operates with webmail (i
think it's called 'webmail') for sending and receiving (altho i had some
problems with hotmail for this), and set thunderbird to use tor as a
proxy. i think that is an acceptable work-around for the terrible
problems of doing your own email, and it bypasses the problem you'll
have not thought of about tor that is that you can't send anything in or
out on the smtp port with tor.
