I think it would be nice to have native support for SMTP over TLS,
but there is some effort in doing it.  I looked at seeing what
it would take, but I think some reworking of some of the I/O
code would be required to provide a decent enough abstraction
so alternate I/O transports can be used.

However, I did find a workable solution since I wanted to
use Gmails servers for sending outgoing mail.  See


for more details.  I figure what I did can be used for Yahoo's
mail servers.
