*** SMTPmail now uses encrypted connections (via STARTTLS) by default
if the mail server supports them. This uses either built-in GnuTLS
support, or the starttls.el library. Customize `smtpmail-stream-type'
to change this.
>From C-h v smtpmail-stream-type:
smtpmail-stream-type is a variable defined in `smtpmail.el'.
Its value is nil
Type of SMTP connections to use.
This may be either nil (possibly upgraded to STARTTLS if possible),
or `starttls' (refuse to send if STARTTLS isn't available), or `plain'
(never use STARTTLS), or `ssl' (to use TLS/SSL).
So maybe setting that to `starttls' will have the desired effect?
