I assume you mean that mail from yahoo to your server is not arriving.  
Obviously the first question is what is the domain name you are sending to, 
whats the setting in exim.conf for that domain (what does your local_domains 
parameter in exim.conf say), and what does the MX record in the nameserver 
for that domain point at.

Once you can be sure mail is arriving at the exim smtp port (because of the 
above) its more a question of understanding your exim.conf file.  But given 
there is no record in your logs, I would suggest that the first question is, 
is the mail arriving at all.
