Oh well...

The following assumes Exim runs on the same host as the web application. The 
web application should use "localhost:25" to contact Exim (preferred in your 
case), or directly run /usr/sbin/sendmail.

First of all, run

# dpkg-reconfigure -plow exim4-config

On the following prompts:

 - General type of mail configuration:
	internet site; mail is sent and received directly using SMTP

 - System mail name:
	(your server's hostname, NOT pinecam.com
	Note: make sure it's resolvable by public DNS)

 - IP-addresses to listen on for incoming SMTP connections:

 - Other destinations for which mail is accepted:

 - Domains to relay mail for:

 - Machines to relay mail for:

 - Other prompts:
	(just hit enter)

...and you're done.

Also, don't forget to check your server's IP against a mass blacklist 
checker such as the one found at http://www.mxtoolbox.com/blacklists.aspx

Lastly, keep in mind that emails from your server will be scored higher as 
spam if they're originating from a @pinecam.com email address, as Google has 
published SPF records with such instructions for your domain.
