I think you're on to something, Eli. I see a daunting amount on smtp changes in 
the news files. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what to do next. I went so far as 
to comment-out everything you see below and then fired up the new emacs (my 
.authinfo file still exists unchanged); upon trying to send mail I seemed to 
make progress when it asked what outgoing server I wanted, but after specifying, it seemed to freeze; one C-g later and it gave me the same old 
TLS error. 

Does anyone have an example of a working smtp setup in emacs >24.3?
