I don't think that is the case. Forget about tormail. I also left them. It's too often not online and in meanwhile mails are dropped, which will automatically unsubscribe your from the mailing list.

That is not the case. You can still download Tor without the Tor Browser. Especially for you (no, not really, you just brought it to attention) I wrote the chapter https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorifyHOWTO "UPDATE and WARNING". Do also read "examples and reasoning".

It's a tormail problem.

> Please solve!

It IS "solved". The answer is "not recommend for most people right now". Unfortunately that what you are asking for is not easy to do. I wouldn't expect it to be done in near future.
