If the above doesnt work, update both postfix and openssl and regenerate the keys and try it. I remember seeing a bug in one version of openssl that created a similar error for Postfix and the bug was fixed in an updated version of openssl. If TLS is switched off, does Postfix relay mail as it should ?

Yes postfix works normally without TLS. I have reinstalled postfix after purging the package several times. At one time yesterday, apt said postifx and all needed files were installed and when I go do a /etc/init.d/postfix start, postfix said there was no postfix-script under /etc/postfix/ ... and I saw that file wasn't there really. I purged and reinstalled, that file is there now. But still, reinstalling several times and regenerating the CA certs, I still ge the same above error: STARTTLS problem: 454 4.3.0 TLS not available due to local problem And the postfix list doesn't care to respond it seems. What is the way out? Building postfix from source? But what is the guarante that I won't get this error then too. I have tried installing postfix on Fedora and got the same error even on Fedora. How would I know what the problem really is? TLS in Postfix is messed up? I had nightmares getting it to work on Sarge abo ut 3 years ago too I remember.
