    Features include:

    Sendmail compatible interface (command line options and exit codes).
    Authentication methods PLAIN, LOGIN, CRAM-MD5, DIGEST-MD5, GSSAPI, and NTLM.
    TLS/SSL both in SMTP-over-SSL mode and in STARTTLS mode. Full certificate trust checks can be performed. A client certificate can be sent.
    Fast SMTP implementation using command pipelining.
    Support for Internationalized Domain Names (IDN).
