I prefer not to change current smtp connection configurations, it’s flexible
and already simple enough.

For newly built mail servers, SMTP auth (with end user’s user/pass) and
secure connection are required, but there’re few companies which have
to use a hard-coded smtp user/pass for all outgoing emails (historical reason).
