Hi Alexander,

>>> innconfval: /etc/news/inn.conf:175: unknown parameter tlscapath
>>> innconfval: /etc/news/inn.conf:176: unknown parameter tlscertfile
>>> innconfval: /etc/news/inn.conf:177: unknown parameter tlskeyfile

Yes they are the correct parameters, but only understood when TLS 
support is compiled.
That is why I wonder why these parameters are set if INN is not compiled 
with TLS support.

#ifdef HAVE_SSL
     { K(tlscafile),               STRING    ("") },
     { K(tlscapath),               STRING  (NULL) },
     { K(tlscertfile),             STRING  (NULL) },
     { K(tlskeyfile),              STRING  (NULL) },
#endif /* HAVE_SSL */

The longest ones?
