I guess I'm confused by this statement in your original post:

"when I attempt to send an email from woody to dad@delliver it doesn't
get there."

Are you actually using the email address dad@delliver ?  I believe based
on what you've said that you would in fact want to send email to

Well, you haven't really given us enough info ... you say that the email
doesn't get there.  Does Eudora produce any error messages, and if so, what
are they?  What do your exim logs say?  What about your pop server's logs?  On
your debian machine, logs will be somewhere in /var/log.  You probably have
logrotate set up, meaning that you will see somelog, somelog.1, somelog.2.gz,
etc.  somelog is the log to which the system is currently writing; somelog.1
is the previous log file; somelog.2.gz is the earlier log file, gzipped.
