    Hi

    We get this when we try to send email to some hosts outside our network. I can't figure it out if it's on our end it fails.

    Return error message:


    This message was created automatically by mail delivery software (Exim).

    A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
    recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

    The other side has indicated that it supports secure connections, however the handshake has failed.

    You can tell exim to avoid the tls handshake with this host by doing the following:

    Open /etc/exim.conf and scroll down to the transports section.

    Find this:

    remote_smtp:
    driver = smtp

    and add just below it the following:

    hosts_avoid_tls = mail3.forss.net

    Save the file and restart exim.

    If you run into any additional hosts with the tls problem, you can add them to the hosts_avoid_tls directive by appending to the line you just added, seperating the hosts with a :
