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
2                               none
3                               none
4                               none
5                               No Filter
6                               Your.ISP's.domain.name
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.

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