You need to install the program "starttls" or the program "gnutls".

The exact procedure for this depends on your system.  Once you have
starttls installed, do

M-x customize-variable RET starttls-program

The description says:
   The program to run in a subprocess to open an TLSv1 connection. Hide Rest   
   This program is used when the `starttls' command is used,
   i.e. when `starttls-use-gnutls' is nil.

Hit "save permanently" when done and that's all.

If you install gnutls, you have to customize starttls-use-gnutls and
starttls-gnutls-program instead, through the same procedure.
