sending with exim: need fully-qualified hostname


Dear all,

how to configure exim on a laptop in order to use correct sender addresses? Certain hosts reject reject the mails with a message like:
Code:
    SMTP error from remote mailer after RCPT TO:<xxxxx@xxxx.xx.xx>:
    host yyyy.xxxx.xx.xx [192.38.43.87]: 504 <localhost>:
    Helo command rejected: need fully-qualified hostname
I use the local ISP-s mailserver as dc_smarthost, the configuration looks like:
Code:
# /etc/exim4/update-exim4.conf.conf
#
# Edit this file and /etc/mailname by hand and execute update-exim4.conf
# yourself or use 'dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config'

dc_eximconfig_configtype='internet'
dc_other_hostnames='tibu'
dc_local_interfaces='127.0.0.1'
dc_readhost=''
dc_relay_domains=''
dc_minimaldns='false'
dc_relay_nets=''
dc_smarthost='mail.neti.ee'

CFILEMODE='644'
dc_use_split_config='false'
dc_hide_mailname='false'
Probably I need to specify something more but what?

Thanks in advance,
Ott

Well,

seems that a line

Code:
primary_hostname = your.isp.mailserver
in '/etc/exim4/exim4.conf.template' and '/etc/init.d/exim4 restart'

solved the issue.

Best,

Ott
