I have Woody installed with Exim 3.35 and most everything seems to be fine, but I cannot deliver mail to an address like firstname.lastname@example.org for example. At least I get a return message from eds.com:This message was created automatically by mail delivery software (Exim). A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients.

Hm, I don't mean to offend you, but did you actually check http://www.mail-abuse.org/ ?
Somewhere somebody seems to be thinking I'm sending abusive mail.?Mail to other addresses like hotmail.com or gmx.net and gmx.de arrive, but almost always as "junk mail", no matter what I put in the subject field or message body.Does anybody have an idea what I need to do, to get my mail delivered properly/appropriately?
It looks to me as if you are trying to send your mail directly from your computer, but the IP address you are sending from is listed in a dial-up user list (DUL). Unfortunately those IPs are often used for spamming, so many ISP don't accept mail from these anymore or at least mark it as spam. Try setting up your exim to use a smarthost, there were just recently several postings about this on the list. HTH, Flo
