yeah, your headers look reasonable--speaking from a position of obvious 
inexpertise. what i looked at were the references, which make a lot more 
sense than mine, all of which refer to message id's from localhost, whereas 
yours eventually refer back to chello.at. i guess that--message id's anchored 
at localhost--was the cause of the angry gripe you got from the sendmail 
user, although i would imagine that some manner of safeguard exists within 
his responsibility to prevent that. otherwise, internet havoc would easily 

essentially, i've followed all the rules i've found, including those you've 
passed on. nothing you said caused any negative effect, so i assume that they 
are relevant. i've read that some of exim's syntax rules occasionally cancel 
each other, so i'm thinking that something i've done previously is having 
that effect. back to the FM, i guess. nothing like a good read before bedtime.

thanks for your help. if i get it sorted, i'll get back to you.
