[Pkg-exim4-users] SMTP timeout with Exim4

I am running exim4 on my remote server devmodul.com, I use it to send
mail from my localhost using smtp and plain authentication. When I
telnet to devmodul.com, to port 587 where I have set up exim4 to listen
on, everything goes as planned. But my mail client is timing out. Here
is the mainlog info: 

SMTP command timeout on connection from -
h169n1-g-kt-d2.ias.bredband.telia.com []

I restarted exim -
exim 4.50 daemon started: pid=25313, -q30m, listening for SMTP on
[]:25 []:587 []:25 []:587

exim4 debugging info -

I am not sure why exim4 has suddenly changed its behavior and refuses to
send SMTP mail. Can someone advise?
