Did you select smarthost as your type of system?
You won't get the question if you select internet site
because that configuration assumes you send and receive email directly via 
smtp to target machines.
If you want to relay through smarthost you'll either have to 
dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config;
or edit update-exim4.conf and run
or write up a router and transport yourself.
dpkg-reconfigure is the easiest way.
