I'll admit that I'm something of a clueless idiot when it comes to 
something like STARTTLS, but looking at the stuff on sendmails page about 
it, I don't really see a listing of clients that it can work with.  One 
advantage of the SASL stuff is that a fair number of clients seem to 
support the thing, including several for windows (yeah, I know, the evil 
term, but some of us actually have people that use windows clients to do 
their mail).  Now, maybe I just don't know what magic STARTTLS offers me, 
and I'd convert if I knew better.
