Sorry, I thought that you had access enough to check those things.  Then
you are just going to have to contact a postmaster and ask them to run
it for you and see what's going on.

If you are in group adm, you can use exigrep to find out status of
messages (it produces quite a bit of output, though)

/usr/sbin/exigrep fw@deneb.enyo.de /var/log/exim4/mainlog*

Will tell you about _all_ the logged tries for all messages to you -
that might be an unacceptable load and an unaceptable amount to wade
through, however.  It does at least sort output by message, and makes it
easier it easier to visualize than a plain grep.

Good luck,
