SOCKS5 w/ Auth for Email
« on: December 10, 2009, 01:58:55 PM »
I can't find a single email client that can use SOCKS5 with Authentification. I've been using Thunderbird Portable with Proxifier, but I need to have the ability to leave my primary email client on, around the proxy...so I had to add a Proxifier Rule to exclude Thunderbird...which forces Proxifier to exclude all other instances of Thunderbird...even though I changed the executable name.

Does anyone make a plug-in, or anything to enable SOCKS5 with auth for ANY email client?

I even bought Foxy Proxy Plus, and as it turns out doesn't work for ThunderBird, just FireFox.

I can't find one that works with SOCKS5 with Username and Password...has anyone found a way to use email over SOCKS5 with a username and password?

Here are some socks proxy with email support for you
Code: [Select]
219.132.216.233:1080
220.176.140.191:1080
222.178.58.112:1080
24.178.68.138:40725
60.29.123.60:1080
61.164.108.125:1080
61.178.74.39:1080

You need the socks proxies that support SMTP to send email with them.
Our software can test whether a socks proxy supports SMTP:

Outlook Express can use socks proxy to receive and send the emails.
It uses the proxy setting of IE. So set your IE to use the socks proxy and your outlook will use the same socks proxy:

Due to the particular security requirements that I have, I need a portable installation, as my email client has to be installed on a TrueCrypt virtual drive. Thunderbird is my email client of choice, but I can't find a Add-On to get it to accept Username/Password for SOCKS5. I actually have my own proxies setup, no problems there. I just can't use them with login and password, so I am forced to update my IP address on my proxies all the time as I travel. So each time I visit an airport and want to check my mail, I have to first SSH into a server and set the IP I am using in the proxy to allow it, otherwise I can't reply to an email without the other end seeing and possibly filtering my airport IP in whatever country I am in.

Maybe you can write an add-on for your SOCKS proxy software like you have for the HTTP Proxy, so you can click the one you want to use in Firefox, but I'd really like to see one for Thunderbird and Firefox :)
