Two weeks without mail and I'm desperate

Alright, I need some big geek juju. I know I have many Unix wizards and friends-of-wizards on my friends list. Please give me a hand.

Tlands' host stopped being able to send outgoing e-mail about two weeks ago. We're running exim (4.54 #1) with xinetd (Version 2.3.14 libwrap loadavg) on Linux (Linux 2.6.15-27-server #1 i686 GNU/Linux). Incoming mail is smooth as silk, but any time I try to send a message beyond localhost (even directly using exim -v), it gives me an error:
==any.address@any.domain.com R=lookuphost T=remote_smtp defer (-1): TCP port "smtp" is not defined for remote_smtp transport
