Well, you MUA does it already.  The IMAP server of your provider also
has this information, and, worst of all, your responsible surveillance
agency has this information at their fingertips.  Protecting mail meta
data is pretty hard and close to impossible if you do not want to leave
traces on your local machine.  For high security areas Tofu is
definitely not an option.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
