I assume that this "" is the same as the domain below.

Look at your mail logs (maybe /var/log/maillog or /var/log/exim/*log) for
further details.

Notice that is says "Connection refused". Why is it refused?

That host in the mail exchanger for that domain name. Can you connect to

If you need further help, provide more details. Troubleshooting mail
problems is fun :)
