Ok, I looked a bit deeper and from what I understand I need SASL (I have no
cert that will be trusted by the peer, and from the above URL it looks like
that will be a prerequisite to use TLS).
On the other hand SASL (both with sendmail and postfix) requires the cyrus
sasl library and is not compiled in with our in-tree version.
This is a pretty disapointing state of affairs. Hell, even outlook express
can do this with a simple mouse click!
I'm gonna completely re-evaluate my choice of MTAs and proably install
some exchange servers ;-}
