How would client auth fit into this picture if the default was set to whenever possible, the server was configured for SSL connections & required client auth, but the user did not yet have a cert set up for client auth? Would defaulting to connect via SSL whenever possible still be the desirable default?

This bug confuses me. Is this bug about S/Mime email messages? Or is it about SSL connections? SSL has nothing to do with S/Mime. Please describe more clearly what you are suggesting.
I believe the reporter is requesting that IMAP and SMTP should default to when possible instead of never/no for the SSL setting in the mail prefs.
what mime thing are you confused about? i've never mentioned it its simple to do just change the current default to "use SSL smtp if available" no hastle what so ever JG
Ah, I see, thanks for giving more details. I guess I was confused, because you assigned this bug to component S/Mime, but were talking about SSL. So you are requesting, in a new user profile, the SMTP option should default to "when available". Actually, there is already such a bug.
