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:

R=userforward defer (-1): bad mode (0100664) for /home/ac/.forward: 020
bit(s) unexpected

Can anyone suggest what is wrong here?
