You may need it to talk to a remote MTA that insists on doing TLS.  And
there's valid use cases for it.

Half the time my laptop is at home, so letting my local sendmail do the
delivery isn't workable, lot of sites whinge at the fact that it's a cablemodem
address. So if I want my mail delivered, my easiest is to forward through the
MTA here at work.  And it was easier to just tell nmh to forward rather than
have it point at the local sendmail and reconfig that to forward.
