sendmail 8.11 implements SMTP STARTTLS which allows for strong encryption of e-mails for transmission. It can also be used to authenticate users, and hence provides an alternative to SMTP AUTH. These authentication methods can allow relaying and solve the problem of "roaming" users.

sendmail 8.10/8.11 enhance the anti-UBE features that were introduced in 8.9, and remove their shortcomings, e.g., by using tags in the access map. Even more support for measure against UBE have been introduced in 8.10, e.g., new macros, new rulesets, and new maps. Moreover, a generic "filter" API called milter" is available in 8.11/10 (even though a bit "hidden").
