I had been told that Bigpond would block smtp and searching on Google
for smtp and Bigpond shows many frustrated users who have been blocked
but I had better have a try and see what gives. 

I have reconfigured exim4 and guessed a few things as I don't know much
about mail but Bigpond's website gives its mail site name as
mail.bigpond.com so I set exim to use it and I think it has worked. This
email is sent from mutt while at home using Bigpond.

This email should appear to come from mikel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
