I'm receiving error mails: couldn't reach your server; e-mail not sent. When I look at the Exim error logs, I see the host where I sent the mails from, followed by 'relay not permitted'. What can I do now?

You need to add the ip of yout host(s) to the list of the *permitted relayers". Here is a simple article on how to configure that under Ubuntu, which has a split file type of configuration (as debian) and so differs from the official one.

Well, exim thinks that the domain of the receiving email is not local (so it should relay it) and correctly is denying to be a relaying host. You have to add your domain to local_domains like this: domainlist local_domains = @ : localhost : mydomain.com
