Hi Mike,

Could you share the DNS name used for the MX record with us (i.e the
world known email address served by this exim host)? If you'd prefer
not to just say so, but since it is your *email* address I figure it's
okay to tell it to the world ;-)

Can you telnet to your exim server on the smtp port and send a mail to
yourself? If you believe you are not receiving mail, look in your log
files (/var/log/exim/mainlog) when you send yourself mail - what do
you see?

One other thing: I noticed the word 'smarthost' in the log file
entries you posted on this. Does you use a smarthost or not?
