API to detect STARTTLS

Post by ras07 » 2016-08-30 20:50

It would nice to be able to know whether the in the incoming SMTP session was encrypted (for example, as a property in the Client object).

In my experience STARTTLS sessions are rarely spam; it would be cool to be able to utilize that knowledge in a spam strategy.

I added a poll question and some extra bits

Tell me if you would like the question changed
Just 'cause I link to a page and say little else doesn't mean I am not being nice.

Thanks!
Really, I can't see the need for any more than knowing whether it was encrypted or not, but perhaps someone else will. Perhaps just generalize the question to something like "I would like access to incoming SMTP encryption status in the API"?
