Unfortunately, Jan-Jaap is one of two people whose ISP's STMP server
is complaining (hence the CCs) about reverse DNS and he wont' have
seen this discussion.  I don't know if that's because the PTR record I
asked for from my hosting provider hasn't propagated yet, or is somehow
incorrect (I'm not an expert on such things), or due some other aspect
of my setup.  I may have to see if I can use a smarthost instead,
although the exim documentation on this is a bit obtuse.
