Configuring Exim to Relay Mail

Finally got around to digging into exim tonight to give our webserver machine the ability to send mail. A few months back we moved the web traffic to a new machine, leaving the old machine to just handle mail. Since then any mail from web-based applications has been failing.

The sad thing? The work to get mail sent from the webserver to route through our mail server required a change in two lines in /etc/exim/exim.conf:

domainlist local_domains = localhost : mandan.kruckenberg.com
domainlist relay_to_domains = *.kruckenberg.com

We don't have a ton of mail coming from the webserver, but will be nice to once again get notifications of comments/trackback on the weblog.
