    I have problem using STARTTLS. I get the following error message
    '454 TLS currently unavailable'
    I have both /etc/exim.crt and /etc/exim.key changed to my own cert file, restarte exim. No error messsage is written in /var/log/exim_mainlog and exim_paniclog, so I have no idea what is wrong with my configuration. Anybody having the same problem?

    Go on, have a guess
    If you have a firewall, do you have port 465 inbound open?

    Yes, my server is in fact behind a firewall, but even if i opened that port, i get the following error
    EHLO
    250-xxx.xxx.xxx Hello [xx.xx.xxx.xxx]
    250-SIZE 52428800
    250-PIPELINING
    250-AUTH PLAIN LOGIN
    250-STARTTLS
    250 HELP
    STARTTLS
    454 TLS currently unavailable

    Sorry that I can't be of further help, I get a successful connection on mine with the same, so yours ought to work:

    220-aa.bb.net ESMTP Exim 4.34 #1 Tue, 17 Aug 2004 21:49:13 +0100
    220-We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited,
    220 and/or bulk e-mail.
    EHLO
    250-aa.bb.net Hello [127.0.0.1]
    250-SIZE 52428800
    250-PIPELINING
    250-AUTH PLAIN LOGIN
    250-STARTTLS
    250 HELP
    STARTTLS
    220 TLS go ahead
