GMail: your STARTTLS implementation refuses to use any unbroken TLS
ciphers such as AES256-SHA256.  I had to re-enable DES-CBC3-SHA and/or
RC4-SHA to satisfy your STARTTLS clients, and using broken ciphers and
hashes makes the panda sad.

Before:

Think of the panda, please upgrade your outbound SMTP STARTTLS clients
to support modern ciper suites.
