theme: second profile for tor

Claws-Mail do not support proxys and i am a bad c++ coder but i want to
catch and send emails from tor i had to fiend a solution:

you need:
* Claws-Mail
* Tor
* torsocks (also to find in meinem Ubuntu-Repository)

The case is: With torsocks you can pas a hole program inclusive DNS-cals
through a proxy-server. But maybe you want to use tor only for one
specific user and not for all userers. Well in this case you can offer|
use a second profile.

First you can create a knew folder for the second profile:
$ mkdir ~/.claws-mail-tor
You could now start Claws-Mail and torsocks with this knew folder:
$ torsocks claws-mail --alternate-config-dir .claws-mail-tor
Claws-Mail would now akt as it would start the first time, it would open
the assistant to create a knew account.

If you want, that this knew account is treated differnetly from the
others account you can also conect a nother GTK-Theme, if you sue this
command (the path to gtkrc have to be  adjust to an existing theme on
your system):
$ GTK2_RC_FILES=~/.themes/Dark/gtkrc torsocks claws-mail
--alternate-config-dir .claws-mail-tor
If you don't want to tipe this command on hand, you should create an
alies for it.

You shoul kep in mind, if you want to use tor, you shoul use a
mail-server with a hidden-service (i dont know a frew one) or you should
use with a normal mail-provider SLL. If you don't do this, there is the
dangeores, that the login-information could get catch up from

An nother point is, that the most exit-nodes don't allow port 25 and so
its allmost inpossible to send mails with tor without using SLL. But
with per SSL (no STARTLS!!) it should work mostly, even if some
exit-nodes this port also blocks.

This is my ruff translation.
