OK I've had a little sucess on my own but i've hit another problem.
The previous error was due to me adding the new director to the wrong
part of the config file.
To get this directive to work it needs to be added at the _top_ of the
directives section, not to the end of the file as i had done.

Now the mail gets collected but i get the following in the exim log:

2004-01-28 13:39:00 1AlpuG-0005j9-00 <= root@p4-7126.uk2net.com U=root

2004-01-28 13:39:00 1AlpuG-0005jD-00 Frozen (delivery error message)

where real.server.name is the real domainname of the server. And test1
is a user defined as morris in the matching domain alias file:
~  morris: test1

How do I get it to jump to local delivery after matching the alias?
