I have smtp auth enabled on my Exim server on Debian Squeeze. I am trying to connect using Outlook 2010. 

In my /etc/default/exim4 file, I have the following.
SMTPLISTENEROPTIONS='-oX 465:25 -oP /var/run/exim4/exim.pid'

I aslo have TLS enabled

# Enable TLS

But, it is giving the following error.

2011-11-15 18:42:10 TLS error on connection from 173-228-81-232.dsl.static.sonic.net [] (gnutls_handshake): A TLS packet with unexpected length was received.

What do I need to do to get Outlook 2010 to work as a client?
