    I have some problems with users not recieving email and know I see this in my log files;

    T=local_delivery defer (13): Permission denied: failed to chdir to /root

    What does this mean? Am I under attack?

    messages sent to root are usually just error messages from services,

    chmod +x /root will just allow exim to change to that directory, don\'t be surprised if you get another message saying it can\'t change dir to /root/mail/ you will just have to do the same again

    do you have any other strings from your exim_mainlog which may explain why your clients arn\'t recieving mail?
