    Being the owner of a Symbian phone (Nokia N95), I've encountered the
problem that it can't properly talk TLS with my exim 4.68 server
(described under bug #402861[1] and elsewhere). I understand this is not
a problem with exim, not even with libgnutls, and I hope the Symbian
guys fix the implementation in the phones. Meanwhile, I need ways to
work around that.

    It would be nice if there was something that could be changed in the
phone, but I do not think that is possible, so a work around must be
made in the server. This page [2] gives some workaround, the most
interesting being the use of gnutls_priority_set(). So I ask if there is
a way to change that priority in Debian exim. Avoiding a recompilation,
that is. Or if there is any other possibility.
