It has been known for some time that starttls.el's negotiation fails on
Windows because Windows does not respond to SIGALRM requests.  Rob Davenport
proposed a work-around in this post:


I wonder first of all if this fix can be incorporated into starttls.el file

Secondly, trying starttls on Emacs 24.0.94 produces a misleading error

    smtpmail-send-it: Sending failed: Emacs does not support TLS, and no
    external `gnutls-cli.exe' program was found 

This despite the fact that gnutls-cli.exe is available on the exec-path:

   (locate-file "gnutls-cli.exe" exec-path)

Applying Rob Daverport's patches to starttls.el allowed the smtpmail to
function fine.

So, I would appreciate if the error message can be improved by making it
more specific about the nature of the problem.  As it is currently worded,
most Windows users are going to get thrown off course.

The network-stream-open-starttls error message has been changed on MS
Windows, and that was the only part of this that was an Emacs issue.
