Quoting from master.d.o's exim.conf:

sender_verify = true
headers_sender_verify = true
sender_verify_hosts = !murphy.debian.org:*

| If this option is set with "sender_verify", and the sending host

| headers (which are checked in that order) on all incoming SMTP
| messages. If one cannot be found, the message is rejected,[...]

Therefore a message from root@mydebian.dialuphost.com to popcon won't
be accepted.
