Well, much has gone over the dam since I wrote. The main problem was
that not only had I misunderstood the syntax for writing plain text
authentication to the /etc/exim4/passwd.client, but for some reason
included that entire line when I configured exim with debconf to specify
my IPS's mail server.
Compounding the problem, I had torn out and reinserted a hardware
firewall, and I was trying Wanderlust for the first time in place of
rmail, and on top of that was doing all this along with a fresh Etch
Although I'm still writing this from my wife's machine, I'll unscribe
her and subscribe from my regular machine.
Thanks for help.
