	The rob0 test isnt complete, most problems can be tracked by
his test, but to be sure, its better to do the full smtp delivery:

 02:54:42 ~/$ telnet slaphappygeeks.com. 25 
Connected to slaphappygeeks.com..
Escape character is '^]'.
220-box811.bluehost.com ESMTP Exim 4.76 #1 Sat, 19 May 2012 19:54:53 -0600 
220-We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited, 
220 and/or bulk e-mail.

test the email delivery
550 Administrative prohibition

	So as you can see, your smtp server reports that the delivery
is forbidden ... the real reason should be in the server logs.
Something in that exim is wrongly configured... check the config,
compare with the logs and if needed, try to do a debug with

exim4 -d -bh

good luck
Naturally the common people don't want war... but after all it is the
leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it is always a 
simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or
a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.
Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of
the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are 
being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and
exposing the country to danger.  It works the same in every country.
