I'm getting a similar error from some of my systems, though I do have
exim already configured to do header rewriting to my valid external
address and that works in other places. It appears that somewhere my
domain name isn't being appended for the rewriting to work.

This particular box gets its network config from DHCP. However, my other
box (IIRC) is doing the same thing and is hard-config'd.

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software (Exim).

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

    SMTP error from remote mailer after end of data:
    host master.debian.org []: 550 rejected:
    cannot route to sender <admin@tarot>

The <admin@tarot> here needs to be <admin@tarot.mentasm.org> in order to
be rewritten to <admin@ferret.phonewave.net>
