Right, I'm pretty sure this is a DNS config problem.  Are you running
bind on this machine, or are you just using /etc/hosts?

I think this is on the right track.  If you aren't running bind, what
do your /etc/hosts, /etc/nsswitch.conf, and /etc/resolv.conf files
look like?  This problem can probably be fixed by either changes to
one of these files, or by a change to /etc/exim.conf.

The best source for docs on exim is to install the exim-doc package,
and then run "info exim".  There's also a great mailing list where you
can nearly always get all the help you need.  It should be listed in
the docs.  Also check out /usr/doc/exim/*
