Maybe listing the requirements for STARTTLS to work? Something like "You
need to build Emacs with gnutls support and have gnutls-cli on your
PATH". Saying that the gnutls-cli is often contained in the gnutls-bin
package on GNU systems would also be nice :-)

Ah, my English parser is buggy.

Yes, but now it is ignored if listed on custom-set-variables even when
smtpmail is loaded later:

  '(smtpmail-default-smtp-server "foo"))

(load "smtpmail")

fails here (smtpmail asks for a smtp server while sending email).


  '(smtpmail-smtp-server "foo"))

(load "smtpmail")
