STARTTLS does not encrypt mail. It only provides safe passage over the network.
It is also client/server encrypted and decrypted. Thus, an administrator with
root at an SMTP server can view the mail once the mail transfer is decrypted.
Also, many big mail vendors have already enabled SSL/TLS/STARTTLS, such as
Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft.
