I’m sure there are more appropriate places to ask this, but I just started using whonix and while I’m here I thought you guys would know how to help with this. If you’ve got a few minutes to explain it to a noobie I’d really appreciate the help.
I want to send and receive email @ my own .onion address. If I understand correctly hosting a hidden service is a simple as running the web server as normal for clearnet and then pointing tor at it. But are there extra complications for email? I know it’s a weird old protocol. Can I just run my MTA/MDA on the server as normal? Someone said something about pointing my email server applications at SOCKS? How would I do this?
Thanks a ton in advance for any help!
p.s. I know pointing a MUA like thunderbird at onion email is tricky, that’s okay, webmail is fine.
