how do I get STARTTLS working with sendmail on FreeBSD 10.3 ?

I commented out the lines starting with checkHost, and started stunnel.
It does start, and runs as a daemon. However, it doesn't seem to DO
However, that hasn't changed sendmail's behaviour one iota.
As far as I can tell, stunnel is a massive waste of time.
I don't really want to spend months reading all the stunnel docs to figure
how to get it to work with sendmail. Sendmail is hard enough on it's own,
I can mostly control sendmail (well, except for the STARTTLS problem.)
This email is free of malware because I run Linux.
