mh> I do not understand what you mean here.

Only that exim4.readme.html, Section 2.1.4 
gives the general picture.  That is important 
for someone trying to understand the 
configuration process.

mh> SMTPLISTENEROPTIONS='-oX 465:25 -oP /var/run/exim4/exim.pid'

Now I've done the same, except that I am using
port 587.  Port 465 is assigned to a Cisco 
proprietary protcol.  Google "site:cisco.com port 465".

mh> tls_on_connect_ports = 465
mh> in the main configuration.

I put "tls_on_connect_ports = 587" at the 
beginning of the section entitled 
"### main/03_exim4-config_tlsoptions".

Is that location feasible?  (The .ifdefs  
baffle me.)

mh> What does "does not work" mean?

A message could and can still be sent from the MUA 
connected to the LAN where the machine running 
exim resides.  A message could not be sent through 
a SSL tunnel initiated at the remote site.

Tuesday or Wednesday I'll try the tunnel with the 
revisions described above.  If it still fails, 
I'll see whether /var/log/exim4/{mainlog, rejectlog} 
tell anything useful.  (Higher verbosity might be needed.)

Thanks,      ... Peter
