TLS email question

My client wants TLS installed on their verio server. Verio can do it, but they don't support it. I'm assuming its just a shell command to install. But I'm not familiar with TLS. Do I need to do anything else after it's installed to configure?

    Since Google acquired Postini (, you are most likely going to have to use their Wiki and search a bit for TLS configurations.

    I did do a quick search and found this document in reference to Transport Layer Security for Outbound Mail, so it may be a good starting place to look...
