Since this exists on an internal network, where do these two servers
look for information pertaining to the internal addresses? If your Exim
box wants to send to "", it isn't going to be too
successful asking your ISP or other outside DNS about machines that
exist behind your firewall.

The options are; 1) run an internal DNS that those machines query or at
the very least 2) enter the required information into each machine's
host file.

I suspect the failure is due to this problem, but it's only a SWAG
because you didn't post the content of the bounce messages or log file

Good luck.
