Do you get the same if you send the message with the `mail' command?
e.g. "mail firstname.lastname@example.org"
What does /var/log/exim/mainlog say about a single message sent from
Gnus? Have you made any changes to the file generated by eximconfig?
There are two places I think "Sender:" header could be coming from.
Gnus might add one, and I can't see how it would ever not have an "@"
symbol. What do you get if you put your cursor after the following
line and type `C-x C-e'?
(concat (user-login-name) "@" (system-name))
What does the Sender: header in any archived mail look like, if you're
using the Gnus message archiving function?
Gnus, by default, uses the "-f" flag on its call to
/usr/sbin/sendmail, and exim might include a Sender: header because of
this. You can disable this from Customize, or with the second line
below, and often get better results.
(setq message-sendmail-f-is-evil t)
If all else fails, you could add the line below to your remote_smtp
transport in /etc/exim.conf and see what happens.
headers_remove = "sender"
