Exim4 won't send mail - what does this error message mean?
I'm getting serious trouble with exim4.
A lot of mail, incoming and outgoing, just sits in /var/log/exim4/input
indefinitely. This includes even messages I email to myself.
However, some things do go out (including this, if it reaches the list).
The relevant lines in /var/log/messages/exim4/mainlog read as follows:
2003-10-21 14:47:02 1ABwqk-0000H3-Fu <= email@example.com U=ac P=local
2003-10-21 14:47:02 1ABwqk-0000H3-Fu == firstname.lastname@example.org
R=userforward defer (-1): bad mode (0100664) for /home/ac/.forward: 020
Can anyone suggest what is wrong here?
