The problem: exim 4 (coming from exim3) the exim user etc. was quite problematic
to get things going :(

What I don't understand, it's only breaking for this case where the remote
mailer fails (in PIPELINING mode, i believe the remote mailer is also exim)
only on *some* of the rcpts. The moment I add the max_rcpts to 3 or less,
the emails goes through without hassles. I think the remote mailer
(sun.ac.za) might have limits on the number of incoming RCPT for spam
reasons etc.
