I have an Ubuntu VPS that is using exim4 as a satellite email server set up to send mail through Google Apps.
Mail meant to go to an address hosted by Google gets delivered. This means that things like a "contact us" webform is working because it delivers to the domain hosted on Google Apps.
Incoming and outgoing email from the Google web interface works fine and all of the MX records appear to be in order.
However, for some reason, sending outgoing email from the server to a non-Google-hosted address (as in, one that ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM doesn't know about).
Here's exim4 log message I get:

Is there some setting I might have missed, either on the server or in Google Apps itself?
It's obvious that I need to tell a config somewhere that "no, this isn't for you, just send it along". Any suggestions? (And I'd be happy to post any configs)
I've Googled extensively without finding anything specific to my issue.
EDIT: I'll also add that I'm getting this (in the spam folder) in my Google email account:
