TLS is the Transport Layer Security protocol.
The TLS protocol provides communications privacy over
the Internet. The protocol allows client/server applications to
communicate in a way that is designed to prevent eavesdropping,
tampering, or message forgery.
TLS and SSL are both supported by REBOL/Command. If your SMTP
server requires a TLS connection, you are out of luck with just
/Core or /View, unless you try to use tools like stunnel etc.
