drwxr-xr-x 3 root   root     4096 2007-02-26 11:29 /opt
drwxr-xr-x 3 root   root     4096 2007-02-23 15:24 /opt/mail
drwxr-xr-x 4 nobody nogroup  4096 2006-02-09 12:13 /opt/mail/
drwxr-xr-x 7 nobody nogroup  4096 2007-02-27 15:40 
drwx------ 5 nobody nogroup  4096 2007-02-13 15:49 
drwx------ 2 nobody nogroup 24576 2007-03-07 12:27 

From the exim configure file:

exim_user = nobody
exim_group = nogroup

So the permissions look fine, and as I said in the first email, the
spamtrap users Maildir gets 10+ mails a minute delivered to it 24x7.

Having looked into the aliases which generate this error, some of them
where listed twice in the aliases table in the mysql database, I've
removed them all and re-added them, and then tested them all again and
they now appear to work correctly......
