Why is STARTTLS option missing for incoming server at mailserver settings in odoo?

This probably answers my own question but I'm still curious to hear if anyone else has an answer.


From the code I've read it seems that fetchmail.py in odoo/addons/fetchmail/ makes use of imaplib and poplib and both have missing support for STARTTLS. I don't know about a solution for poplib's missing starttls method but I found a fork of imaplib which is called imaplib2 that implements a starttls method. This could be used to add starttls functionality.


What is a possible solution if I would like to use STARTTLS with pop3?
