I see. It would probably be easier to communicate with upsteram if we
could see the version where you have directly configured stuff in the
configuration files.

I think the issue is that upstream might have changed the way that
macros are parsed. Here is our code:

.ifndef DCsmarthost

  debug_print = "R: smarthost for $local_part@$domain"
  driver = manualroute
  domains = ! +local_domains
  transport = remote_smtp_smarthost
  route_list = * DCsmarthost byname
  host_find_failed = ignore
  same_domain_copy_routing = yes

When you enter "remote_smtps_smarthost" in update-exim4.conf.conf, you
end up with DCsmarthost being defined as "mailhost::465
remote_smtps_smarthost", which is obviously misparsed in the
tokenization stage of exim's configuration parser.

Changing the actual router code to say
  route_list = * DCsmarthost byname remote_smtps_smarthost
seems to work for me. Please try that.
