You have the normal eximconfig problem. Try this and I believe it
will work for you.

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
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.
I haven't lost my mind; it's backed up on tape somewhere.
