[tor-talk] Torbirdy



Cypher cypher at cpunk.us:
A few months ago, I seem to remember the general advice being not to
use Torbirdy. But I see the software was updated only a few months ago
so I assume it's in active development. Can I assume Torbirdy is safe
to use?

Thanks!

Jacob Appelbaum jacob at appelbaum.net:
Using TorBirdy is fine - the two time leaks are very small issues
compared to using Thunderbird without TorBirdy. This is especially so
for weak crypto, or a total lack of crypto, which may be possible
without TorBirdy.

It isn't perfect but it is a whole lot better than plain old
SMTP/POP/IMAP, HTML email, etc, etc.

Remember we're comparing Thunderbird without TorBirdy vs with
TorBirdy: it is strictly better, even if imperfect.

All the best,
Jacob

In short, TorBirdy is the shit!
