 I've got similar troubles to David, and when I tried the 'all mail routed
through smarthost' option, all my system mail gets sent to my isp, where
it can't be dealt with so it bounces back to me. 

It may have something to do with the fact I've put in my isp's domain name
in as a visible name, but otherwise the return address has my machine's
name as a domain. Even now, I still have my username on my machine as the
user part of the return address. Because it lacks the "60" of my username
at my isp, I can just pretend it's antispam but it's still pretty

Before you ask, this mail gets sent from a different system 8-p.
