You need to have your Sender: and the SMTP MAIL FROM be valid e-mail
addresses.  If you own a domain of any kind, set exim up to use that as
the local domain (qualify_domain = domain.name).  Otherwise, try
something like rewriting (such as that in the rewrite configuration and 
the end of /etc/exim.conf) or a mail client which communicates with the 
MTA using SMTP.

There's quite a bit of discussion of this in the debian-user archives.
