    Go on, have a guess
    Check /var/log/exim_mainlog (linux) when sending fails for errors/messages.

    It's odd that there's a quit command in your pasted output which will, of course, terminate the connection.

    That was a manual telnet session he had issued for testing - my guess, he probably typed quit himself.
