It usally means, that exim is not able to deliver the message.

By running 

exim -bp 

you see the delivery status of the messages queue. You can run try
flushing the queue manually by 

exim -d 10 -M <message identifier>

You get heaps of output which you can look through to get some clue at
what is getting wrong. You also need to work through the exim manuals to
understand the output. It may be cumbersome but is worth the effort.
