procmail to external SMTP


I have tried to forward email using procmail recipe to external SMTP server, but failed.
I've got EXIM4 installed (Debian testing amd64).

Thanks.

edit: I've managed to use 'mail' command to send emails. but don't know how to use it with 'mailbox' type messages that have attachments.

thanks, but the usual:
Code:
 ! user@somewhere.edu
simply doesn't work. I think its due to sendmail command also not working.
These command send emails with no problem from CLI, to given SMTP server: mail, mutt, swaks.
But I don't know how to use them with procmail to forward email.

edit: I've made some pathetic progress with this:
Code:
| uudeview -p $HOME/tmp/attachments - | swaks -4 --to email2@null.com --from email1@null.com --body "${BODY_}" --server smtp.server.com -ao --auth-user=luzer --attach $HOME/tmp/attachments/test.msg
hope someone could provide better solution.
thanks.

Do you have a link from /usr/sbin/sendmail or /usr/lib/sendmail to exim?

yes,there is a link /usr/sbin/sendmail -> exim4
this seems to work with multiple attachments, but there must be better way:

Code:
| (uudeview -p $HOME/tmp/attachments - ; for file in ${adir}/*.msg;  do  atts="$atts --attach \"${file}\""; done;  swaks -4 --to email2@null.com --from "${FROM_}" --header "Subject: ${SUBJ_}" --body "${BODY_}" --server smtp.server.com -ao --auth-user=luzer --auth-password=pwd $atts )
thanks.

edit:
I've found this in returned mail: "Mailing to remote domains not supported"
I would like exim4 to be configured, so that all local email (like cron) stays local.
