It looks to me as if you've set up an alias to an account which doesnt
exist on your box. have you created the user test1?

perhaps it would be beneficial to explain generally what you are trying
to accomplish. Are you trying to set up virtual accounts (email accounts
which you accept mail for, but which do not have a local account (one
that exists in /etc/passwd) on your machine? If you are just trying to
implement aliases in general, that is already provided in the exim3
default config.
