Sendmail-TLS is a wrapper for sendmail (and possibly other MTAs) that allows mail clients which support SSL and TLS connections to communicate with a mail server securely. This currently includes Netscape Messenger, Microsoft Outlook, and Microsoft Outlook Express. This is being released under the GNU Public License
NOTE: This package is no longer under active development and is left here for curiosity sake. Sendmail now includes direct support for the STARTTLS command. I would recommend you use that support instead of sendmail-tls.
Solaris apparently has a brain-dead copy of inetd which only passes the first five command line parameters from the inetd.conf in to the program when run. There is no workaround at the moment, but there will eventually be a configuration file which should make this issue go away.
