Easiest is perhaps to run "sudo dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config" and then 
fill in the server of your smart host (probably smtp.pt.lu) when asked 
for that. You could also edit /etc/exim4/update-exim4.conf.conf. Where it 
says dc_smarthost='' you should fill in the adres of your smart host, 
which again might be smtp.pt.lu. If smtp.pt.lu does not work you should 
ask your provider.
