TLS Enforcement From Postini - Was Never Working?

Ok I've had TLS enforcement turned on in Postini since I got it for a particular domain of a company at which I was working. I just not got an error message stating that I cannot email this company because their mail server does not support TLS. I just used nslookup and telnet to test these mail servers and in fact they do not support TLS. So I don't know for how many months this "TLS Enforcement Policy" was not working. At all. I was sending messages to and from this client thinking they were encrypted.
