For what it's worth, after upgrading here, I got this error at the
server side:

Jul 26 10:15:41 foo.example.com postfix/smtpd[7736]: warning: TLS
library problem: 7736:error:14094418:SSL routines:SSL3_READ_BYTES:tlsv1
alert unknown ca:s3_pkt.c:1256:SSL alert number 48:

This is because my postfix doesn't have a ca bundle configured but all
other mail clients have been fine before.

With the original patch here I could continue.

I'd really love to see an option to set this to none in the .gitconfig,
but agree with the principle that it should be one by default and the
setting should over ride that.

All the best


PS I'm mainly posting this such that people searching the intertubes for
the postfix error above and git-send-email will match at least this
message and find the fix/workaround :)
