you need to do 2 things.
1. configure exim to use a domain name (the one you get your emails to). I
don't use exim so I can't help you with that.
2. I guess you also don't have a constant IP. you should probably also
configure exim to send all your messages through your ISP's smtp server. some
hosts don't accept mail from dialup IP's.
