Thanks a lot Glymr for leading me to the solution I need, junking my
current email client for Thunderbird :D

Once I got Thunderbird to use Privoxy for Socks and go through TOR,
that solved the problem. I'm using my own domain name/web server so
the problem of having them free webmail track me isn't an issue.

I'm not sure why you said I cannot send anything in/out on the SMTP
port with Tor because it worked for me.

Now I just need to get around to setting up a dedicated box to run Tor
instead of having it on this Windows machine :D

Thanks again!
