exim not resolving external domain, what's wrong



Okay, I've recently changed the domain for my private network,
and am trying to reconfigure exim.

Internal domain is internal.aom.geek, served by local DNS.
External domain is aom.geek which is CNAMEd to ferret.dyndns.org
currently, but will be picked up if I'm ever living somewhere I
can find a real ISP. Also, *.aom.geek is CNAMEd as well.

Symptoms:

I can't send email to <user>@mail.aom.geek. I can send email to
<user>@tarot.internal.aom.geek (tarot happens to be my gateway)
<user>@localhost, and <user>@ferret.dyndns.org.

Others, (using OpenDNS servers) can resolve and successfully
send emails.

I can't puzzle out what the problem is.
My exim.conf is attached.

I will be switching my email addresses from @ferret.dyndns.org to
@mail.aom.geek on or after September 1, 2001, but not until after
Debian's servers include support. 'geek' is an OpenNIC TLD. See
http://www.opennic.unrated.net for details about adding OpenNIC
support to your computer, or ask your provider to add support to
their name servers.

address_file:

# This transport is used for handling file addresses generated by alias
# or .forward files if the path ends in "/", which causes it to be treated
# as a directory name rather than a file name. Each message is then delivered
# to a unique file in the directory. If instead you want all such deliveries to
# be in the "maildir" format that is used by some other mail software,
# uncomment the final option below. If this is done, the directory specified
# in the .forward or alias file is the base maildir directory.
#
# Should you want to be able to specify either maildir or non-maildir
# directory-style deliveries, then you must set up yet another transport,
# called address_directory2. This is used if the path ends in "//" so should
# be the one used for maildir, as the double slash suggests another level

# are passed to address_directory.

# current one gets passed on instead. This covers the case where A is 
# aliased to B and B has a .forward file pointing to A.

# For standard debian setup of one group per user, it is acceptable---normal
