[stunnel-users] SMTP AUTH with stunnel?

Not at all.
Stunnel is not a smtp proxy: it does not deal with applicative protocols in
general (higher than level 3 osi, ie tcp/ip).

But it can be used, implemented both at the server side AND client side, to
tunnel SMTP traffic in SSL tunnel , thus emulating "SMTPS".

Yours sincerely,
