The first variable, @code{smtpmail-auth-credentials}, instructs the
SMTP library to use a SASL authentication step, currently only the
CRAM-MD5, PLAIN and LOGIN-MD5 mechanisms are supported and will be
selected in that order if the server supports them. The second
variable, @code{smtpmail-starttls-credentials}, instructs the SMTP
library to connect to the server using STARTTLS. This means the
protocol exchange can be integrity protected and confidential by using
TLS, and optionally also authentication of the client. It is common
to use both these mechanisms, e.g., to use STARTTLS to achieve
integrity and confidentiality and then use SASL for client
authentication.
