Try using this in the servers exim.conf:
local_domains = *.mynetwork

host_accept_relay = *.mynetwork (again, in server's exim.comf)
As far as I understand what your after, you then want to run exim.conf
on your workstation and set it up as a `sattelite' system, so that
outgoing messages are sent to your server (this will also rewrite the
headers to say they are from server.mynetwork).
Also, you may want to read
I have rewritten the `outfilt' script that this URL talks about so that
the From: field is obtained from an email-alias file (clobbering the mail
reader's alias<myaddr> to guard against accidental changes). Also, the
CC:'s and To: headers processing is a little more sophisticated to
ensure it will work under a variety of conditions. I will stick it on the
web in a few days if anyone is interested.
