I'm not able to receive mails on a pc running exim, I think could be a 
permissions problem.
when I run ps -ef command I see the next text

1004     10116     1  0 09:14 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/exim4 -bd -q30m
root     10141  9937  0 09:19 pts/0    00:00:00 grep exim

Usually instead of 1004 should appears the name of user running exim, that 
is Debian-exim, looking in my /etc/passwd file I see that 1004 is the number 
of the user Debian-exim. Why does appears the number of the user and not the 

I uninstalled debian package and delete Debian-exim user, installed again 
and add manually the user (I had to put a password to the Debian-user) 
because it wasn't created automatically and the problem still be the same.

Any suggestion?
