ok, what do you get with exim -bt -v and the email address for your lists?
unroutable address likely means that it didn't manage to match up on any
of the routers, so we need to understand why none of the routers matched.

you will need the aliases file unless you decide to get really clever in
your exim config; i think you should get standard style install with
aliases file working before you try to do anything else.
it's easy enough to hide the addresses from external parties, that's what
the private alias files are for in my example on the web site -- so that
the -outgoing addresses are not accessible to the whole world.
