Yes, I stuck with monolithic.

Sure.  Point your favorite browser to http://berg.selfip.net/exim4 
you'll find the config files there.  passwd.client contains what I
mentioned in the other post.

Run diff to be sure, but I don't remember changing anything in this
file.  I know I looked at it but didn't actually change anything, but
I could be wrong.

For some reason I started thinking about receiving via SMTP instead of
sending.  My firewalls allow anything outbound so I didn't have to
touch them for sending.
