Use TIdHttp inside TThread anonymous function doesn't raise exceptions

That is one possible error, yes.  There are other possible socket errors.  But yes, all non-HTTP errors would be handled by your outer catch (Exception &E) block (which BTW, should be catching by const reference, just as you are doing when catching EIdHTTPProtocolException).

They will be thrown in the same thread that is executing the HTTP request.  You would have to catch and delegate them to other threads as needed.

And that is fine, and the code I have given you should be doing exactly that.

That is one way to do it, yes.  The other way is to catch EIdHTTPProtocolException and copy its ErrorMessage text into your target TStream.
