Package: exim4
Version: 4.63-17
Followup-For: Bug #348046

Hi Andrew,

I encountered the same problem, so I asked a Japanese mailing list.

The resolution is simple:
Just remove the line 'tls_on_connect_ports=465:587'.

Then, I can send a message using 25 or 587 (or probably 465; not tested)
with STARTTLS with Thunderbird.
