Unless you send "EHLO localhost", you will never see it.

You want to block all smtpd's if they don't use TLS??
This is only recommended on a submission port.
Otherwise, it can/will block normal internet mail.
Suggested main.cf setting is "smtpd_tls_security_level = may", then
override in master.cf if needed.
