it appears that we either have to wait until sun comes out with it in JavaMail 1.3.2 in a
couple of months (http://archives.java.sun.com/cgi-bin/wa?A1=ind0406&L=javamail-interest#15,
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=james-dev&m=108910460627517&w=2) and there is the
limitation of only being tested with java1.4 or 1.5 or we go for http://www.gnu.org/software/classpathx/javamail/javamail.html
and then many even depend only 1.5?

        Key: JAMES-304
    Summary: secure remote delivery opportunistically or even allow make TLS mandatory
       Type: Improvement

     Status: Unassigned
   Priority: Major

             Remote Delivery

Environment: all - I use RH Linux 9

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)
