All right. But I currently have working example of SOCKS5 which sends
email (using standard SMTPSenderFactory and whatever protocol it
spawns) to my local SMTP server. All I provide is socks host and port
and plus SMTPSenderFactory filled with mail data. May this be called
"much refactoring" ?

Transport is not involved, only set of SOCKS5Connector, SOCKS5ClientFactory
and SOCKS5ClientProtocol.

Best regards,
