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

Let's assume that I have no idea what I'm talking about.
However, I can successfully report what I SEE.
1. Android's mail app wants to use STARTTLS when it connects to my mail
whatever reason (send or receive) isn't important now. It wants it, and I
want it to be
happy, or else it doesn't work.
2. When I telnet to port 25 of my mail server, sendmail does NOT announce
as one of it's capabilities. This, despite my having all the incantations
in my hostname.mc, fresh self signed cert and key file in /etc/mail/certs,
and various other
things that have been suggested/intimated by various sources.
It would be nice to solve the problem stated in the Subject of this
insanely long thread:
Why is my sendmail refusing to announce STARTTLS ?
This email is free of malware because I run Linux.
