As evidenced on Tutanota's own blog, the organization is pro-privacy and pro-Tor/VPN usage - and thank god for that!

In order to further protect Tor users (who by definition value privacy more), how about setting up an onion address to access the webmail at, in parallel to the clearnet site?

This approach is used by, among others, ProtonMail, ProPublica, The NYT, etc.

If feeling ambitious, why not make it a nextgen onion address? :)

@mpfau Thank you for including the issue in your roadmap!
If you can really be reached via a .onion address, it will support the statement of your blog article. https://tutanota.com/blog/posts/tutanota-and-tor
How can this feature be realized?

When I tried just now to register for a new account in the Tor Browser, it failed, telling me my IP was blocked to prevent abuse. So much for being Tor-friendly!

I searched your website high and low for an onion address, and eventually DuckDuckGo led me to this open issue. Isn't it rather silly that a service that is so proud of its privacy-protecting features doesn't have an onion address?

@bitcoinhodler this won't change anything regarding signup. A lot of tor exit nodes are abused by spammers, that is why we have those restrictions on a few of them. And we would have to have those restrictions with an onion address, too.

Hi,

Is this still being considered?

Maybe allowing registration through Tor only if you pay could be a good way to prevent spam.

I can't connect to mail.tutanota.com on tor browser anymore. I think tutanota decided to block tor?

By the way, I use tutanota only through a VPN.

I suggest accepting monero and bitcoin as payment methods. Paying with paypal or credit card destroys privacy.

Frankly, having looked at the article you wrote in 2018 about "Tutanota and Tor" - https://tutanota.com/blog/posts/tutanota-and-tor/ , it really doesn't make much sense for you to NOT have an onion address.. it would take an engineer very little time to set up the onion address, routing to the same pre-existing servers, and for such a FUNDAMENTAL message about your commitment to open source and privacy being contradicted by an inability to use Tor to access your emails?

It has me doubting your service as privacy oriented honestly. I suggest escalation of this to a higher priority.. it's not as big a job as you may think.. just the keys configuration mostly.

good luck
