Possibility to use the STARTTLS command when available with NNTP
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; fr; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/20080201 Firefox/220.127.116.11 Build Identifier: version 18.104.22.168 Contrary to the POP/IMAP/SMTP implementation in Thunderbird, it is impossible to ask for a TLS connection with NNTP (that is to say using STARTTLS when available). Only *complete* SSL connections are currently possible. Reproducible: Always
I wonder whether this bug wouldn't be more appropriate for "Core -> MailNews: Security" or "Core -> Networking: News" components (availability of a TLS backend for news). Or else, should a separate bug be filed in "Mozilla Application Suite -> Accounts Manager" to track the same UI in SeaMonkey? Or maybe all three? (here for the Tb account settings frontend, Core for the Tb+Sm backend, Suite for the Sm account settings frontend)?
Banal triage stuff.
