Ok, perhaps I should explain the server set up a bit more...
This will end up being off topic for PHP I think but perhaps
there is someone who may be able to help me (I will also post
this information on the Exim mailing list I just discovered). is a large internet provider which I have an
ADSL connection through. Any servers don't belong
to me but to the provider.

Off this ADSL connection is a BSD box which does my firewalling, 
etc. Behind that box is the web server which is called ( being my domain). On this 
server is a Debian Linux box which runs Apache with PHP, 
the Exim mail server, etc.

So, any idea what I could be missing from my configuration
that would let me ping addresses nslookup them but not
send mail to them?

Any other questions/information needed?

thx for the help!
