    I have a paid Sigaint account working in Icedove (with TorBirdy and Enigmail) in a Whonix workstation VM. I followed the instructions exactly. I used the POP server settings, and used their onion service address for both POP and SMTP.

    If you're not working in Whonix, maybe you haven't setup Tor properly. It's not such an easy thing. You can piggyback from Tor browser, but it's a kludge. I recommend just using Whonix.

    Ya i have to reinstall whonix i got my gpg4win working properly and i have enigmail with thunderbird for a few other email addys but whonix is the safest way to prevent leaks. I have just been super busy and haven't had the time to sit down and do it maybe tomorrow i can reinstall it. I have so many backups i have to do anyways. Man i wish i never messed up the first time i had FDE. Now that i understand it i just have to rebuild like i had it before. Thx mirimir
