Because you may have two Email Service Provider groups:

Used-in-clearnet ESP accounts: Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo, etc...
Tor-only ESP accounts: Riseup, Lavaboom, Openmailbox, Austiciti,
Cock.li, etc...

The problem is Thunderbird+TorMail doesn't have a specific proxy
configuration for each account. So every account will use Tor Socks5 proxy.

If Hotmail, Gmail or Yahoo has problems with Tor being used, you need to
find a way for it to work. Hotmail isn't complaining about Tor as far as
I know, Gmail does but should be solved and I don't know about Yahoo.
