Package: reportbug
Version: 6.4.4
Followup-For: Bug #412914

Dear Maintainer,

I vote for this feature to be added to reportbug; an example of one
major provider who supports SSL and not TLS is aruba here in Italy.

Currently reportbug can not send the mail via the aruba smtp: I have to
retrieve the temporary file in /tmp, copy the To, Subject and body and
send with my mail client.

As a testing setup I suggest smtp.gmail.com:465.
