The first thing to check is if your hostname is included in the local
delivery list of exim4; see the ouput of

  grep dc_other_hostnames /etc/exim4/update-exim4.conf.conf

dc_other_hostnames should be a comma-separated list of all possible
hostnames for local mail, e.g.


if your hostname in /etc/hostname is "debianbox". You might have to add
more hostnames to this list; check your exim4 log for the exact
addresses of the failed local mail deliveries.

The easiest way to change the exim4 setting is to run

  dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config

The relevant configuration option is "other destinations for which mail
is accepted".
