would suggest that bolsh.wannadoo.fr does not resolve. And since it doesn't
resolve, they do not allow you to use their service, apparently.
You'd have to make exim send mails as if they'd be coming from wannadoo.fr
to pass through that blocking mechanism.

Subject: [ILUG] SMTP issue: Mail delivery failed: returning message to
I'm a cable user with wanadoo.fr, and up until recently I had a
grand little set-up. I send mail to my local smtp server (exim),
which then forwards it on to smtp.wanadoo.fr. I called my local
machine "bolsh.wanadoo.fr", and it's basically just a local name
(it resolves to 127.0.0.1). Up until recently, all was fine.
Sometime yesterday, I started getting messages like the one
attached below... is it my fault, or has something on he server
side changed, and how can I fix it? Not knowing much about smtp,
I'm not really in a position to diagnose the problem...
Thanks for any help ye can give,
