Man, sending the same message 3 times will not help you to get an
answer. Just opposite - people will start ignoring you.

Read some book about SSL TLS etc. If you want to use it, you need to
understand it a little.
How do you want to force a server to "start STARTTLS"? It's not server's
job. Read the previous mails about imaps.
If you had spent just 5 minutes using google you would have found that
sieve supports only STARTTLS. If you want to force encrypted connection
you need to use stunnel. Probably you would also want to disable foreign
traffic to unencrypted sieve port using iptables.
