FWIW, I've been adding all working setups. Most of the time, providers 
only offer non-SSL setups, but SSL works fine, so we add that. Similarly 
with other options.

If we add normal SSL as second configuration after STARTTLS, then 
Thunderbird will ignore the second one, but Gaia can still select it.

That said, I strongly advise to implement STARTTLS in Gaia, because some 
setups provide only STARTTLS, and most ISPs only support plaintext 
passwords, so dropping to unencrypted would be most unfortunate.
