comment How common are encrypted connections between email servers?
Thanks for your dry analysis. So it's rather common in certain fields -- i.e. @Mark mentions health care, finance, etc -- but yet not widespread.

comment How common are encrypted connections between email servers?
1) Thanks for your report! Highly appreciated! 2) It's interesting to know that you can set a "require encrypted connection" flag on a outbound mail server. Questions: A) If the condition is not met, the email is not sent at all? B) Or bounces back to the sender with a note "Encrypted sending was not possible"? And: Does your outbound server send directly to the receiving server? Or are there relays in between? I guess you need a direct connection, else you would only have encryption certainty on the first route section, and uncertainty on the remaining path.
