Can I ask why this is please? I had brief thoughts in the past of delivering
some mail via the Tor network. The only way I could think of doing
this was to queue all mail, then configure up tsocks to point at a Tor
daemon and run the queue runners inside that from cron...

That reminds me. An "smtp_via_socks" driver would be nice. Anyone want
to slap that idea down, or "me too" it, before I wishlist it?
