cups should be using /etc/printcap.cups. The printer config files are
actually located in /etc/cups. /etc/printcap is probably left over
from before you installed cups. 

To help diagnose problems with cups, log files are in
/var/log/cups. You can set the LogLevel parameter in
/etc/cups/cupsd.conf to "debug" and restart the cupsd process to get
more output to the logs.

Have you tried "/etc/init.d/cups restart" to see if that corrects the

How is the SMTP server identified in Mozilla-mail? It should probably
be the same in exim.conf. In my exim.conf it looks like:

route_list = * outgoing.verizon.net byname

Based on your email address I imagine yours maybe something like:

route_list = * xxx.primus.com.au byname
