Public bug reported:

It seems that emails are silently discarded when the remote SMTP server
replies with an error on STARTTLS. Here is an example smtp log created
with NSPR_LOG_MODULES='smtp:5,timestamp':

The UI, however, gives no indication of failure and closes the compose window after the apparent successful submission to the smtp server.


If the user has not configured a Sent folder this results in data loss. Even if the user has configured a sent folder, he receives no indication that the email has not been sent.
