I tried to use the hidden service of an email provider with claws mail. I start the client with
torify claws mail, but it doesn't work. I only get:
Connection to hiddenmailservice.onion:995 failed.
Network log writes:
Account 'Hidden mail service': Connecting to POP3 server: hiddenmailservice.onion:995...
The console additionally threw:
WARNING torsocks: [connect] Connection to a local address are denied since it might be a TCP DNS query to a local DNS server. Rejecting it for safety reasons. (in tsocks_connect() at connect.c:177) connect: Operation not permitted ** (claws-mail:14724): WARNING **: can't connect to server.
This message appears instantly, so it seems that claws-mail didn't even try to connect. When I change the server to its clearnet name it works though. Is there any possibility to use claws-mail with onion services?
