I dont want to use it for IPSEC. One of my collegues is, and thats working
fine also. I want to use it for TLS/SSL acceleration in sendmail.

I linked sendmail against the base openssl (libcrypto and libssl).

When using mozilla to send a mail it negotiates the following encryption
scheme: DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA. Ive also used Kmail and outlook, which
negotiated slightly different schemes, but also didnt work. 
And I forced a whole myriad of schemes, from simple to complicated, through
apache, and none of them worked.

Is there a way to get hardware acceleration for sendmail TLS/SSL? 
Maybe get a different card?
