> There really is no great reason not to have TLS setup on at least the hosts in the MX
record.  While obviously end to end encryption with GPG is better, having TLS setup is better
than nothing.
> Searching for existing issues on this didn't find much but I did find this issue:
> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-5440
> The response there seems to be that the certificate available isn't licensed for mail
server use.  Surely this isn't an impossible thing to overcome.  If nothing else StartCom
offers free SSL certificates.
