Hi Larry,

Did you ever send email from your own home computer to yourself at your address successfully?  If not, you may find it useful to 
go into administrator mode and run dpkg-reconfigure --priority=low 
exim4-config.  You should be asked about how you want to configure exim4 
to send outgoing email to the internet and it will help to have all of 
this working before attempting to use report-bug.
