I can't think of anything, except that you need to make sure exim is
configured correctly (it sounds like that has already been done).  And
as a warning, future versions of nmh default to the SMTP submission port
so maybe you want to add a "-port 25" under send in your profile, or
make sure exim is also listening on the submission port (587).

I personally want as few moving parts as possible so that's why I
configure nmh to submit directly to my provider's SMTP servers, but
either way should work fine.
