Postfix and Exim4 support TLS 1.3 for server-to-server mail delivery through SMTP port 25.

You can just generated the key and activate that feature. If available, both daemons will communicate through it and nobody will easily snoop it.

Even better, they support 16k bit RSA keys, which will resist common computer decryption techniques (except shor) for decades to come.

Test it and you will see how good it is. We just have to enable it in our servers and the first step towards completely encrypted e-mail transport is done.
