Question

Whenever Exim tries to route a local address, it gives a permission denied error for the .forward file, like this:

1998-08-10 16:55:32 0z5y2W-0000B8-00 == xxxx@yyy.zzz <xxxx@yyy.zz>
  D=userforward defer (-1): failed to open /home/xxxx/.forward
  (userforward router): Permission denied (euid=1234 egid=101)

Answer

Have you remembered to make Exim setuid root?
