Here is something I have in my log files about your problem.
I "finally!" got the beast to work. I have
a suggestion for how to install it. When the install script starts
give it the following answers:
Question # Answer
1. Your HOME network.domain
5 No Filter
7 Any user (I made one called boss)
8 Yes - Replace /etc/aliases ( after
you have the #7 already created)
Then go into the /etc/exim.conf and check the following:
qualify_domain = Your Home.domain
local_domains = localhost # This made it deliver mail from
the ISP to me.
There are two ways to write error-free programs. Only the third one works.
