Did you make sure that you have set up exim to do relaying for your
internal network? You neet to put the network address when eximconf
asks you about relaying local networks. I 've never set this up
before, but you can take a look at a Linux Gazette article that's
really helpful. 


You probably already have all the preliminary stuff set up, such as
filtering/forward mail into separate email folders, but I think that
if you address the relaying for your local net, that you'll be on the
right træck. Sometime like answering when prompted for
additional local machines you want to relay mail for. I don't know
what the '/16' does though.

There are a bunch of more knowledgeable people on this list who
(hopefully) will chime in to clear up any of [my] misconceptions.

Hope I was helpful and good luck

Rereading your message, I'm not sure how much help I was. Take a look
that article for some pointers. The author is trying to do the same
thing only with a windows client...
