You're right! It was my configuration of exim. I had it doing hostname
lookups wrong. It wasn't looking up MX records because I had made it use
gethostbyname(), instead of a direct DNS lookup. As a result, it was
trying to connect to hosts that didn't accept their own mail.
It's all fixed now.
Thanks so much for your help.
