At this point i found what the problem was, but now I have encountered
another one. In this new case, seems to me that the problem is due to my
exim being configured as smarthost; I have to figure out how to

variables to the script, it is accepted by the smtp server. In this
case, it is answering that 

"host smtp-server.cfl.rr.com []: 553 5.1.8 <www-data@hpd>...
+Domain of sender address www-data@hpd does not exist"
