Hm, I remember successfully doing something like this, quite some time ago.

Couldn't you simply disable smtpEncryption in the .git/config of that one
repo?  E.g.:

[sendemail]
  smtpEncryption = none

You might also want to take a look at "identities" in the manual.  And related
to that, there's a patch in this old (never merged) series of mine which might
be useful since I believe the documentation bug it fixes still exists.

Cheers.
