Now this is perplexing me, too, and I thought I'd ask here before I
moved on to the exim mailing list.

In my exim.conf, I have this:

local_domains =

relay_domains = *.lithchat.com

Now, here is the error I get in ~mailman/logs/smtp-failure:

Oct 26 17:48:58 2001 (2789) delivery to tester-owner at lithchat.com failed with code 550: 5.7.1 <tester-owner at lithchat.com>... Relaying denied. IP name lookup failed []

I've been getting this error forever, and cannot figure out why on earth
it simply refuses to relay for mailman *only*

ideas? I know I'm not the only person on this list who uses exim...
