Drain stubout

I am replacing a bathroom sink. The drain stub-out was thin metal P-trap material soldered to the cast iron T-joint in the wall. The stub-out has corroded through and had to be removed. The T-joint does not have threads to accept a threaded stubout pipe. What should I use? Should I solder a new thin metal drain pipe to the iron T-joint or is there something more durable I should use so I wont have leaks behind the wall? Thanx.

Since there is no pressure on a drain, you can either solder a new piece to the cast iron T just like the old one, or caulk a piece of thin plastic drain pipe into it.
Good Luck!
