Maybe others have direct experience w/ it.  The general problem w/ many 
extensions, plugins, even clients - is they don't "follow the rules" of 
staying w/in the Tor network AND not revealing data that may leak your 
identity / location.
It's a case by case basis, but for Tor, most don't use extensions / 
plugins - for email - like you're talking.  They're not developed w/ 
extreme anonymity in mind.  Not that they don't work for general, non 
anonymous use.

You want what everyone does - ultimate convenience & high anonymity.  
They rarely exist together.

You can search the archives of Tor-talk for previous discussions.
