STARTTLS is a way to do SSL-based encryption between mail servers
automatically. TLS is the new name of SSL (Secure Socket Layer). You can use
certificates to enables relaying for example (nice for nomad users).

Postfix, qmail, probably Exim and some other MTAs do support it, generally
through patches.

The main problem with Sendmail's one at the moment is the dependency on sfio
(a stdio-like library written by AT&T people).
