That means exim isn't configured quite right.  (or perhaps your mail
client isn't, but I can't tell what it is)

Nope.  IMAP is for receiving mail, not sending.  Mail is sent via the
SMTP protocol.  Some mail clients (most commonly found on mac or
windows machines since they most commonly lack a mail server but are
becoming more common on linux systems) have minimal SMTP support
built-in.  Other mail clients (such as 'mail', mutt, and other mature
unix-based clients) rely on the system's MTA (exim) to deliver the
mail.  In that case you need to have exim configured completely
correctly for mail to be sent.  What mail client are you using?


You have heard the saying that if you put a thousand monkeys in a room with a
thousand typewriters and waited long enough, eventually you would have a room
full of dead monkeys.
