OT: Exim Weirdness

Sorry Julian,
All I know of exim has come from using it with mailscanner so I thought I'd
try here before trying the exim lists.
I have exim configured as it says in the mailscanner docs, so if it is a
problem with my config then it is also a problem with either the
documentation or the version of exim I am running.

MailScanner does not get involved with the delivery process at all, so I
don't think this is likely to be a MailScanner problem.
