You have everything mixed up.
Where did you saw that email can do TLS? It doesn't, the -u/-i parameters are
for doing SMTP AUTH which is a different thing.

Doesn't matter, you can use -r <smtp-server>, and even change the port, nothing
will make email use SSL (which is needed for TLS)-- the library is not linked.
