#17996 new enhancement

new default: mailsend compiled with OpenSSL to avoid plain text auth and send with SSL/TLS

I would like to request a new default in trunk/Chaos Calmer: mailsend should be compiled with OpenSSL to avoid plain text auth and send emails with SSL/TLS.

Currently mailsend package seems to be the only package which provides a simple SMTP sendmail/mailsend command. Unfortunately it is not compiled with OpenSSL support by default, so that plain text username/password auth is the only way to authenticate with your ISPs mail server. Not possible to encrypt password at auth and also not possible to send the content of your email encrypted with SSL or TLS.
In my opinion this is a security risk in today's world!
Would be great if mailsend could be provided with built-in OpenSSL support by default in trunk.
