The approach Tony outlined worked for me:
I added /etc/exim4/conf.d/transport/30_exim4_config_remote_smtp_rb:
  # RB adds rewriting for all outbound mail 7/4/03
  # RB 10/7/05
  #   convention is regular rewrites turn local
  #   addresses in @$primary_hostname for most of processing
  #   Outbound transports rewrite that as below, since
  #   current primary_hostname (iron.psg.net) is inaccessible 
  #   to the world.
  #   The rewriting probably should be more selective about
  #   which users it takes.
  headers_rewrite = *@$primary_hostname $1 at biostat.ucsf.edu
  return_path = ${if eq{${domain:$return_path}}{$primary_hostname} \

Because of the file name these options are added to the standard
remote_smtp transport.
