The main discord here seems to arise from totally different approaches 
to the question. You are building a whitelist while default tor exit 
policy is a blacklist. IMHO it's hard to constructively discuss amending 
blacklist from whitelist POV.

P.S. There is neither X-Mailer nor User-Agent headers in your mails. 
That's cool but missing In-Reply-To and References is annoying. Do you 
use some email sanitizing software or just hardened MUA? If it's not a 
secret of course:-)
