Exim doesnt reports anything by itself. 

Only the MUA (mailx, mutt, anymua) can drive a report the right way to you.

All Unix[script/programs] uses to talk to stdout, so a simple prayer like :

/usr/local/cqritytchek | mutt -x -s "Subjec"t me@myhost.org

will send <me> the report issued by cqritytchek,

no matter you run Exim, Sendmail or Postfix.
