I would however recommend to configure both because it will make sure
that nobody can eavesdrop on your e-mail if you use a mobile network
or a public WiFi.
An encrypted tunnel is also possible. That can work for telnet, ftp
and other communications as well as SMTP. Static key encryption will
work for a tunnel and is simpler than TLS. Assuming you have a few
mobile devices, each can open its dedicated tunnel when appropriate.
With any luck, your phone will support a tunnel.
