The root user is on the never_users list, so you can't send email to root. You should probably create a .forward file for root, sending the email to an address you read.

The failure doesn't hurt anything, it simply kills the instance of exim trying to deliver the message.

But the message may be something you should know about; it look as if you're getting several every five minutes; we don't get them that often; it may indicate a configuration problem on your server.

floyd is right of course.

First create the forward. Then when you get the email, post it.

Jeff, I clean up /var/logs twice a day from this rubbish. The whole server receives barely 10-20 mails, yet this junk is growing so fast.
The instructions you gave about .forward file for root are very unclear, I looked at Linux manual and didn't find anything related to it - I mean "how-to"
Is there any less special way to fix it ? obviously - it takes some resources from my server.

I set mine root forward in /etc/aliases
Code:
root: youremail@yourdomain.com
Then run the command newaliases.
EDIT: newaliases command not necessary

floyd,

My recollection is that you don't have to run newaliases with Exim; that it's a leftover from the sendmail install. Can anyone verify this?

Oleg_Bkk,

You create a file in the specific user's home diredtory, using the user's default permissions (in this case it's /root), named .forward and in that file you place the complete email address which you want email destined for root to be sent to instead of to root.

jeff,

You are right. Just tried it. newaliases does not have to be run. /etc/aliases can be modified and exim recognizes the changes immediately.
