Net::SMTP is the best SMTP class I've seen. It doesn't support TLS, but 
it's easy to sub-class to support TLS (I have a working example in 
Test::SMTP (see starttls_ok method).

I can't find docs on Mail::Cclient::SMTP on CPAN, but if it's based on a 
c-api like Mail::Cclient maybe there will be more portability issues 
than a pure perl implementation like Net::SMTP...
