I don't know, there is not much information included. 
However, I noticed that starttls is not used when the
server does not advertize it. This is not good. If starttls is
enabled it should connect using TLS and fail (or ask the user
to continue), otherwise. If this is the current behaviour
then ignore this.

The problem with these proprietary implementations is that we cannot
easily check against.
