I'm just using 'mail' for the time being.  I configured exim to relay
it to the exchange server, but it isn't configured to allow relay, and I
have no control over it.  I guess I could just configure exim to send it
itself, but I need some way so that it doesn't inclue the debian host's
name in the 'from' address so that it is the same as if it came from the
exchange server.
