Remembered I had a Jessie server running exim4. While it's got a lot of
frozen messages in the queue, it seems to be working so I looked at the
differences and modified update-exim4.conf.conf to fit. There were three
differences. Here are the lines after I changed them and successfully
sent a test e-mail:

dc_other_hostnames='transponder.rahim-dale; transponder'
dc_local_interfaces='; ::0'

I don't think the first line was important and I'm not sure what the ;
::0 does in the third line. Possibly it's the dc_other_hostnames that
did the trick?
