exim4 with ssmtp on Debian  - Sending secure mail seems to have two possible implementations; firstly you can connect over an insecure channel and issue a command (STARTTLS) which tells the SMTP server to start a secure channel. The other option is where you use a secure channel to start with. Usually this happens with an SSL (TLS) connection on port 465 which you then probably have to authenticate over. Exim doesn't support this second model, seemingly by design. Which is a little annoying if that's all your ISP offers! You may like this on your laptop, since by authenticating you should be able to send email from anywhere through the ISP mail server. What you need is a wrapper that provides the SSL connection between your computer and the ISP. Then you have to fool exim into using it, and direct it to send passwords unencrypted (though the underlying channel is safely encrypted).
