I would suggest installing the exim4-doc-html and/or exim4-doc-info

You can add users in the file /etc/aliases. Actually, any existing
local users on your system are already able to get mail without you
having to change anything in this file. But in /etc/aliases you can
define users that don't have an account on your system. You could add
the following line:

maurits: maurits@vanrees.org

If your mail server works correctly this would forward any mail sent
to maurits@<your-domain> to me.
