I'm still not clear on one point. I understand that when an outside
user mails to (e.g.) test59 at fyrenice.com, the mail is rejected by
Exim. What I am not clear on is what happens when you, using Mutt on
the local host, send mail to test59 at fyrenice.com? Does that mail get
piped to Mailman and delivered to the list, or do you get your mail to
Mailman in another way, and if so, how?

In any case, this is still an Exim configuration problem. If you are
mailing to a list (e.g. test59 at fyrenice.com) and it works, then there
is some difference in the way Exim is treating mail originating
locally, vs. mail originating outside. If you post in another way,
then Exim just isn't set up properly for your mailman configuration.

for pointers to Exim configuration information.
