    Hello guys,

    I just wanted to give you guys something back because I've learned a lot on BHW so far. That's why I want to create a small tutorial on how to force use your email client with your proxies.


    1. Required software

    For this tutorial I'm using Proxifier and Claws Mail. Both tools are working perfectly fine on Windows 10 and are free of charge. Of course you can use other email clients. I had some problems with Thunderbird because it randomly crashed all the time. I guess the combination does not work so well.

    You can use the portable version of Proxifier if you don't want to install any software. Claws Mail is portable as well (just unzip the downloaded .exe with 7-Zip).


    2. Force Claws Mail using a proxy with the help of Proxifier

    Run Proxifier.exe and go to Profile -> Proxy Servers.... Click on Add to add one of your proxies. I checked HTTPS because I have HTTP/HTTPS proxies. If you are using IP authentication just leave out the checkbox for Authentication. If you click on Advanced... you can assign a label to your proxy. This is useful if you have a lot of proxies. Click on Check if you want to check if your proxies are working.

    If you are done with adding your proxies, close the dialog and go to Profile -> Proxification Rules... to define a rule for Claws Mail. Click on Add to add a new rule. Choose a name for this rule (e. g. Claws Mail) and click on Browse to select your claws-mail.exe located in your Claws Mail folder. Open the Action drop down menu to select the proxy you want to use for Claws Mail.

    You can add more rules but since you want to use only one proxy at the time, you can just change the Action in the Proxification Rules main windows to fit your current needs. Now we are done with the Proxifier part.


    3. Setting up your email accounts using POP3 on Claws Mail

    I don't have the english Claws Mail client, so your labels may differ a bit from this tutorial. Run claws-mail.exe and go to Configuration -> Create new account. Assign an account name and your full name. You don't need to type in your real data. Type in your email address (of course this must be your email address you want to use). Select POP3 on the Protocol drop down menu. Now you need the server data of your email provider. I'll provide an example of Yahoo!. Go to google and type in yahoo pop3 and you'll get the server data in just a few seconds. In our case that would be pop.mail.yahoo.com for the Server to receive and smtp.mail.yahoo.com for the SMTP-server to send emails. Also enter your email address for the Username and your email password.

    After you have entered your mail data, head over to the tab Receive. If you want you can set the amount of days the emails will remain on the server before they get deleted. Enter 0 days to delete them instantly. You can also disable the file deletion. Last but not least go to the tab SSL and check Use SSL for POP3 connections. Otherwise it won't work.

    Now you are finished and you can add some more email accounts if you want. If you have a lot of email addresses from the same provider, better use separate anonymous proxies for each account just to be safe.


    I hope this little tutorial helped one or two. :)


    Best Regards

    Hello Nakamura,

    Thanks for the helpful read.

    I would like to set 50 different mixed gmail, yahoo mail and aol accounts in claw mail using all different private proxies.

    How would you go about in assigning different IPs to different email accounts in this case?

    I'm thinking about building 50-100 network of emails to use toward Email IP warming process.

    If we are able to form a group of 10-15 different people with 50-100 emails, then we will have a email list of 500-1500 emails used for IP warming purposes.

    With high level of engagement for the emails send from new IPs along with low bounce and spam rate, we should be able to warm in a month or so?
