    I use countermail and shazzlemail. Both work great for me.

    I like this idea cause Gmail is already my current email and I really like it, it would be nice to not have to change it. Is it difficult to do this? UR talking about Mozilla Thunderbird right?

    Gmail + Thunderbird + PGP: I do this too. You can also install torbirdy addon to run it through TOR.

    Alternatively, you can use Gmail + Mailvelope - extremely easy.

    Keep in mind that email privacy and email anonymity are two different things.

    When I have TorBirdy enabled I keep getting a message that says "The Proxy server is refusing connections". I disabled Tor and it was fine, did you have this problem with Tor enabled? I'm looking for a solution now..

    Just want to check if this is the case --> You need to install and launch TOR (TOR browser bundle) first. Then, use Thunderbird + TorBirdy. TorBirdy alone doesn't connect you to TOR.

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but I figured it'd be better than starting a new one. Like others above, I am also running gmail through thunderbird with enigmail and tor birdy. What do these services like shazzle mail, countermail, safemail, etc. provide over what I am already doing?
