This will be a great feature,

Allow the mail function to be able to connect to a SMTP server that has SSL or TLS enabled for added security so developers don't have to use openSSL or something like that to open these ports to send emails through a secure layer.

Expected result:
Be able to connect to a SMTP using a secure connection

Actual result:
None, I can only connect to SMTP (SSL/TLS) using openSSL

And apparently everybody is hyped about it. ;)

Anyhow, I'm not sure what you are actually suggesting.  To my
knowledge, SMTP emailing is only supported on Windows, while other
systems have to rely on an MTA like sendmail.  So, are you
suggesting that mail() on Windows should support TLS, or do you
want mail() to support SMTP with TLS on other systems as well.

Also consider to use a userland mailer like PHPMailer.

Using PHPMailer works like a charm, I'm closing it because this was for PHP 5, we are now in PHP 7 anyway.
