Strangeness!  I sent the message I am replying to via Postfix (before I 
remembered to switch back to Exim), and it worked.

The message I am sending now will be with Exim.  Maybe postfix was 
working okay after all.  The message that bounced was:

From: Me <Me@desk>
To: 40119.nospam@comcast.net
Subject: test
Date: Thu, 29 Jan 2004 23:42:00 -0800
User-Agent: Mutt/
Message-ID: <20040130074200.GA4110@comcast.net>

One worked, one didn't.  Probably tripped a virus filter with the test 
message.  So I still need to add the "Sender" automatically with 
Postfix, and I don't know how.
