I believe you are correct that Sendmail (without source hacking) will
not do an encrypted session.  But, then, why would it?  It is only doing
anonymous queries for specific mail attributes.  Presumably, you are
doing these queries across your internal (presumably private) network
-- so nasty people shouldn't be able to sniff your traffic.
