Not necessarilly, it could well be that exim is configured to deliver
as user root.  At least he told us that the owner of his mail spool
was root.  So I would put my money now on changing ownership of
/var/mail/userme rather then going after the MUA right now.
And just to be sure, I would check the local delivery entries in
/etc/exim/exim.conf to make sure the user option isn't set.
