[Evolution-hackers] ssl always/when-possible/never etc proposal

Since there was confusion again today on the difference between always/whenever-possible, I guess it's a good time to bring this up.

I was thinking in the future, we could re-work the UI for the SSL options to look something more like this:

This would make the backend logic a little simpler too, because we would haven't try and guess which SSL method to use based on trial-and-error.

DanW suggested that we default to Whenever Possible rather than Never when we get around to changing the UI.

this'd require some changes to all of the remote mail providers (smtp, imap, pop, nntp, etc) but I don't think it'd take more than a day or 2 to make the necessary code changes and test everything.

it'd also require an additional setting option in the uri/e-account stuff, but that should be trivial to add too?
