bug#14367: 24.3; smtpmail-send-it starttls ignores the absence of startt

From: sea
Subject: bug#14367: 24.3; smtpmail-send-it starttls ignores the absence of starttls
Date: Wed, 08 May 2013 00:44:01 -0400


I've just noticed that if smtpmail-send-it is configured to use
starttls, and if gnutls-cli (or whatever tls client you use) is /not/
installed on the system, then EMacs will go ahead and attempt to send
the email without TLS anyway, usually resulting in an authentication

The only way to diagnose the bug is of course to look at the smtpmail
trace, which shows a conspicuous absence of the STARTTLS line.

I think that this is a bug, since it leads users to believe that
something is wrong on the server side, or that their authentication
details may be wrong. I think that EMacs should say something about the
missing starttls executable, rather than ignoring it outright.
