[Reportbug-maint] Bug#586680: mta: please support pure SMTP+TLS as well as SMTP+STARTTLS

I just noticed that STARTTLS works when adding `smtptls` to
`~/.reportbugrc`. The issue might have been related to an untrusted
certificate which I needed to add to `/usr/share/ca-certificates` and
enable using `sudo dpkg-reconfigure ca-certificates` (`reportbug` only
gave me the feedback `SMTP send failure: Connection unexpectedly closed:
timed out.`). If the issue occurs again, I'll investigate further.

Best regards,
