      In this case the problem is deeper, one end is not even talking
      SSL/TLS, the "wrong version number" is a bit of a red-herring, an
      SMTP banner is misreported as an SSL record layer header with an
      unexpected protocol version.

      Avoiding this problem would have required a more bloated TLS record
      layer, so better reporting is not easy.
