At my system I run within a user mode linux a courier mail server. Just to play with it and wireshark I'd like to send SMTP mails from my host to the virtual machine w/o any encryption. Unfortunately till now I found no way to convince sendmail at the host to not use STARTTLS - tweaking /etc/mail/access at the host is not a solution, b/c that affects only incoming mails.
Any hints ?

You have to get the courier mail server on your virtual machine to NOT announce STARTTLS in his capabilities. Then it will not be used by the sending server.
I do not know courier mail enough to tell you how, but very likely one can tell the server in its config file what capabilities it should announce and support.
