I can reach an email account that I can only reach via hidden services (nnnnnnnnnnn.onion) via tor browser on anon-whonix AppVM and read/write email. I then added icedove to my MailVM. I created a few regular email accounts (email@example.com) and they work as expected. Added icedove to Anon-whonix VM and did the same. Works. But when I add a hidden services email server on the icedove in Anon-Whonix VM, I get connected, and no folders are created except inbox. No emails are downloaded either. No errors indicated.
WHONIX docs in the section on Hidden services talks about server webserver setup. All I want to do is use icedove as a client to reach the server.
TorBirdy is enabled and shows (Whonix) There is also a (Use Tor Router) option. Same result.
What am I doing wrong? I am new to this from Thunderbird on Windows 10. Latest TAILS. icedove works by the way for accessing .onion email servers with icedove from TAILS. But I will like to use Qubes/Whonix from now on if possible.
Thanks for listening.
