No, it wasn't answered - that I saw.  Thanks.  I know there's a lot on 
the Tor proj. site about editing torrc file.  I thought it probably went 
there, but wasn't sure.

I mentioned earlier in another reply, that might be easier to use 
another mail provider besides Gmail that works w/ Tor, w/o the hassle.  
IMHO, if one is concerned about privacy, the last mail provider on my 
list to use would be Gmail.  Some others aren't much better, but 
google's straight forward about how they're going to scan your email 
(and everyone that replies to a Gmail email).  If you have something you 
want to keep private, don't send it thru Gmail, for sure.  Probably good 
advice, in general.  Or use encryption.

Some providers claim they don't ever scan mail - but I wouldn't stake my 
life on them keeping their word.
