Sorry to follow up on my own message, but I disover this:

  $ swaks

Sounds like my FQDN is being rejected because it is not a known

In my /etc/exim4/email-addresses (a link to itself?) I have:

   user: brownh at hartford-hwp.com

In exim4 configuration dialog, I'm asked for the system mail name. It
says it should be the FQDN, and so I dutifully entered
teufel.hartford-hwp.com .
