sending mail from outlook express

I am using exim 3.35 from Woody. When I SSH into the server and send an email via


The mail gets delivered with no problems. Yet if I connect through OE or Thunderbird and try to send an email to a remote address, I get a message saying "undeliverable address" yet mail sent to local accounts get delivered.

I've googled for the last two days on this and still no answers. Anyone hazard a guess?

no relaying allowed by your mail server (standard practice for obvious reasons)

-- the general practice is to force users to log in before sending to off-site domains.

--you might also be having trouble with hotmail (though i'm unsure about what exactly you're trying to do, i do know they take some rather strict steps to ensure people don't abuse their service)
