Maybe another good candidate for a NEWS mention. There is no immediate
relation among gnutls and STARTTLS for me. It is the first time that I
see gnutls-cli mentioned. It is not in NEWS.

So why is it mentioned in NEWS?

That was one half of the problem. My previous setup is now not
functional because it used variables that are not obeyed by smtpmail as
it used to (smtpmail-default-smtp-server ignored when in
custom-set-variables, smtpmail-auth-credentials gone)
