[Mailman-Users] With mailman installed, normal e-mail addressen on same host bounce

I'm trying to get Mailman running on a Debian host with Exim 4.

After I set up the router and transport for exim as described in the
installation manual, mailman does work (the mailman webpages show info
about the mailinglist) but sending an e-mail to accounts on the same
machine bounces.

The error message is: "local delivery failed".

Disabling the router and transport for Exim makes everything (except
mailman) work again.

These are the Exim config files:

    driver = accept
    require_files = /var/lib/mailman/lists/nieuwsbrief/config.pck
    local_part_suffix = -bounces : -bounces+* : \
                        -confirm+* : -join : -leave : \
                        -owner : -request : -admin
    transport = mailman_transport

    driver = pipe
    command = /var/lib/mailman/mail/mailman \
              '${if def:local_part_suffix \
                    {${sg{$local_part_suffix}{-(\\w+)(\\+.*)?}{\$1}}} \
                    {post}}' \
    current_directory = /var/lib/mailman
    home_directory = /var/lib/mailman
    user = list
    group = list

Can anybody please help me?
