He hasn't given me enough information to investigate this, and hasn't
replied to the email I sent him, so there's not a lot I can do.

The mails are being mangled horribly by procmail, because of the way exim is
invoking it. I was going to ask for help from any procmail users, because I
was sure what I was doing was right, but I've just had a quick look in the
exim docs and it appears that an essential thing in the exim config file has
changed in the current version of exim so that the example I copied from the
FAQ is no longer valid. (from_hack no longer works; a combination of
check_string and escape_string are required for the same effect). I'll
hopefully fix it today.
