    SMTP server

    If this is for one domain , change the MX record for that domain to point to the external server,

    Remove domain name from /etc/localdomains and put it to /etc/remotedomains

    Then restart exim and you are done.

    As far as i know "MX" is for incoming mail server and not for the sendmail to sent using external main server.
