I assume this relates to Elrippo's documentation. After my understanding 
all connections between a TOR-client and a TOR Hidden Service are 
end-to-end encrypted and authenticated via RSA-key->TOR Hidden Service 

My main problem is to route the SMTP-/Jabber-client traffic into the TOR 
network. It would be great to be able to distinguish between normal 
remote host domains and .onion, too.

But still the main goal is a very easy mail setup for average-joes with 
secure end-to-end encryption.

Best regards,
