Looks ok. Apart from the line "ec_use_split_config='true'". You have
"dc_use_split_config='true'"; I do not know what "ec" is. Probably no
harm is done.

Again looks ok. "homelinux.net" is some sort of dyndns thing, isn't it?

This is not ok. Exim uses what is in /etc/mailname to qualify an address
without a domain name. For example, if the mail is sent to david then
exim cannot let it go out like that so will add localhost.localdomain
and send it david@localhost.localdomain. smtp.012.net.il will be unable
to deliver it because localhost.localdomain in not in the DNS. The mail
should be returned to you.
