    Exim seems to have installed fine and runs but it will not actually put the mail spool in the /var/mail folder. I have even tried to make the /var/mail folder chmod 1777 no luck nothing, exim accepts the incoming mail, correctly idetifies it as local delivery (or aleast that’s how it looks to me) but then errors about chaging UI and Gi ids. Below is the output from exim in debug mode with one message sent. The user is correctly set up and can log in with a POP client just no mail ever shows up in /var/mail or his mail box. (the user has no home directory on the server if this makes a difference) the Server is 10.2.1.
