 +TLS can pitch an annoying warning that states "TLS connections will fail. Suggested action: either install a certificate or change tls_advertise_hosts option."  I should not be getting this Warning, nor should I have to change any options in the config, since I am already advertising TLS and properly accepting smtp connections from it (see swaks output above).  Most online resources talk about getting this warning when it is a false positive, but in this case, it is false negative, meaning it is saying I don't have this but I do.  Here's how to suppress the irrelevant and in this case, incorrect, warning:
 +
 +  sudo nano /etc/exim4/exim4.conf.template

 +
 +  tls_advertise_hosts =
