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.
