FWIW, I'm having the exact same problem.

I also have an SMTP server that I am successfully connecting to using STARTTLS
from Thunderbird.  I also find that when I try to connect to it using
smtpmail-send-it, the connection just hangs.  It gets to printing the line about
opening the starttls connection, then nothing further gets echoed into the trace
buffer for the SMTP session.  It then goes away until I hit ^G.

suggestion for solving this problem?  Since the server is not mine to
manipulate, I cannot turn off the authentication --- port 25 connections are not
