This is probably because the hints database for the incoming exim says
that addresses have been failing for such a long time that they bounce
immediately. You need to check that the spool directory configurations
for the incoming and outgoing exims are correct and that they are being
run with the correct commands, and check that /var/spool/exim_incoming/db
is empty (as it should be if the queue_only option is working).
