I'm using Ucspi-SSL (sslserver) for the secure connections, upon installing it, i received the following message.

cd /package/host/

# Should not give any output
< sslclient: fatal: unable to set cipher list
> sslclient: fatal: unable to SSL connect:protocol error
> sslclient: error:140740B5:SSL routines:SSL23_CLIENT_HELLO:no ciphers available
> sslclient: fatal: unable to SSL connect:protocol error
> sslclient: error:140740B5:SSL routines:SSL23_CLIENT_HELLO:no ciphers available

I ignored it any my Qmail / Vpopmail with John Simpsons 7.07 patch works fine when SMTP AUTH and SSL, however not with TLS, I'm guessing the above error message is related. Does anybody have any more information about this or know how to fix this? I'm on Debian

    That error is normal and is safe to ignore.  I've got Ucspi-SSL running on 5 Debian servers and I got that error each time I installed.  It didn't affect the program though.

    I added a note regarding this to the Qmailrocks web site back in February:

    Hi, thanks for your response... I did stumble upon your forum post already :) I ignored the error and SSL is working fine, however, unfortunately TLS is not so was thinking it may be best not to ignore the message. Could you explain what the message means?
