Done.  Is that something exim uses if available?  It just sounds like
some utilities from the package description:

This package contains a commandline interface to the GNU TLS library,
which can be used to set up secure â connections from e.g. shell

Do I need to restart exim?

Since my last restart, I'm getting a few errors:
2006-09-18 13:20:43 TLS error on connection from xxx
(gnutls_handshake): Decryption has failed.

I changed the remote host to xxx above.  However, the other hosts that
were having problems seem to be doing OK now.
