Yes.  This gives you the option that, subject to setting various
configuration flags and supplying SSL keys and certs, in any SMTP
dialogue, as a receiver postfix will offer 'STARTTLS' as an available
command, and as a sender it will invoke STARTTLS when the other side
offers it.  So all your e-mail should be encrypted over the wire.  I'm
not entirely sure why this is even considered optional in this day and
age...

	Cheers,
