Maybe https://wiki.debian.org/LDAP/NSS  is a better solution for the mailserver. 

But personaly, the mail server should have replied with a better NDR. 
Like : 4.4.1 The recipient’s server is not responding, so something like that. 

If it was my server, i would fix the mail setup not samba. 
I just cant tell much about exim, i prefer postfix. 

But this like might help, it shows a lot, maybe it helps reviewing the setup and add improvements. 
https://bitlair.nl/Projects/Mailserver_with_Debian,_Exim,_spamassassin,_greylistd,_DKIM,_SRS,_SPF,_DMARC,_forwarding,_LDAP,_dovecot,_LMTP,_disk_crypto 
I've about the same but in a postfix setup.
