Protect incoming emails with SMTP STARTLS
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When receiving an email, none of the three wikimedia mail servers (lead, polonium and sodium) support STARTTLS for reception.

They should offer the STARTTLS, after which should present a valid certificate making possible to establish a TLS connection with a PFS cipher.

Like T101451, the email should also be protected when arriving to WMF servers, as well as when reentering quoted in a reply.
