No, I don't think so. 

It should work on a connection that uses SMTP over SSL starting from
byte 0. If I remember correctly, TLS means starting in plain text,
negotiating, and then moving to SSL.

The good news is that the newish `ports->SSL-ports' function can
support the mid-stream switch into SSL. The bad news is that no one has
implemented it in "smtp.ss".
