Did you set the 'visible name' of your system to home.com? does exim
accept mail for the home.com domain? then it probably thinks x.y.z is a
local user on the system, and if it doesn't exist, it will fail to
deliver it, since it thinks your home machine is mail server for
home.com. set your domain name/visible mail name to something else then
home.com, for example x.y.z.local.home.com

BTW: if all your domain thingies are set to something else then home.com,
and your mail server doesn't accept mail for home.com, it's probably
something else :)
