      Description

      It would be great to have james at least opportunistically attempt to secure its user's outgoing mails with STARTTLS.

      How would one do this?
      1) first a delivery-host must be found that can do this:
      --> see http://tlstest.sf.net
      The ch/zhwin/tlstest/TLSTestAPI.java.canDomainTLS() can do this (in v1.2)
      2) The real delivery still needs to be secured - unfortunately, so far, I only see a broken idea how to do this in http://www.portaljava.com/home/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&p=20492
      anybody with better ideas (especially since there, they mess a lot with system-wide properties, so I am afraid that afterwards, the secure pop and smtp to MUA will no longer work)
