Proxying SMTP+SSL to SSL-unaware mail server

Hi,

Is there a way to make nginx handle all the SSL/STARTTLS and proxy the
traffic to SSL-unaware SMTP server? How do I tell nginx not to use SSL
when talking
to other server, even if e-mail client does use SSL when communicating
with the nginx?

Is it possible at all and if not, would it be hard feature to
implement?

Best regards,

Krzysztof Goj

Interesting question. I was just fighting with postfix to make it digest
TLS. If Nginx can do that it would make the whole configuration much
easier.
