I have not checked again, but can tell you from the past that they check
what web browser you are using, because when you use an anti-fingerprint
add on for your browser and it generates a User Agent string with an 
unsupported browser Tutanota complains and tells you to use the latest
Browser  x,y,z. If they do it any longer or if they do full 
fingerprinting I do
not know.

I guess Tutanota is a fine service, like many others, but I would like 
see Monero cryptocurrency support, when one likes to sign up via Tor.
(have not checked lately if this is already possible)
