	Certificate only relay control ?
	Sorry, but I don't really trust on it that way...
	(Certificate revocation verification mandates usage of (online)
	 revocation list database, and that is lacking in OpenSSL yet.)

	Define "Outgoing SMTP user name", and when user supplies
	the password, verify it.

	To enable that, uncomment "PARAM smtp-auth" at the
	smtpserver.conf  file.

	I do use (myself) SSL only as cryptographic wrapper;
	SMTP peer authentication (e.g. for relaying) is done
	inside it in plain-text.
