all I get when I run "exim -bt -v" is the following:
" is undeliverable:
  Unrouteable address"

and my lists.aliases file looks like this:

sample:         "|/usr/lib/majordomo/wrapper resend -l sample -h -f owner-sample"
sample-request:  "|/usr/lib/majordomo/wrapper majordomo -l sample"
sample-digest-request:  "|/usr/lib/majordomo/wrapper majordomo -l



any help is greatly appreciated, thanks
