So it can send mail but not receive it.
First thing to do is see if this works on the local machine using the
exim address debug facilities - ie on the exim.org box:-
> /usr/sbin/exim -d2 -bt exim-users at exim.org
Exim version 3.13 debug level 2 uid=501 gid=501
Berkeley DB: Sleepycat Software: DB 2.4.14: (6/2/98)
system_aliases director: cdb key=exim-users
system_aliases director failed for exim-users:
list_director director called for exim-users at exim.org
queued for list_transport transport: local_part=exim-users
list_director director succeeded for exim-users
exim-users at exim.org
deliver to exim-users in domain exim.org
director = list_director, transport = list_transport
You may possibly get permissions problems showing up there... although
thats unlikely. Most likely problem is going to be that the domain you
have your lists in is not mentioned in local_domains.
If that works, then HUP your main daemon to make *very* sure its running
off that config file and not a previous incarnation - killall -HUP exim
will be OK.
Then make sure that mail to your list domain really does go to that MTA
- DNS mistakes are easy to make.
