R=system_aliases defer (-30): pipe_transport unset in

Uncomment that pipe_transport line, and make sure you actually have
a pipe_transport (if not, write back and I'll send you mine), and
reload exim.

Ok. I uncommented that line in
/etc/exim4/conf.d/router/400_exim4-config_system_aliases, which was
exactly like that, reloaded exim and got the same log entry.

If exactly the same log entry, then see below. If subtly different,
please post it. Also, you did use `/etc/init.d/exim4 reload`, right?

Identical and `/etc/init.d/exim4 reload`

Just sending a HUP to the daemon won't work with split config files -
the maintainer scripts parse them, clean them up and then concatenate
them into a single file in /var/lib/exim4 that is then used.

....ok. That is a useful detail to know in general. Thank you.

Meanwhile.... $ cat /etc/exim4/conf.d/transport/30_exim4-config_address_pipe address_pipe:
debug_print = "T: address_pipe for $local_part@$domain" driver = pipe

So you have a pipe_transport defined in general, but the system_aliases
router hasn't been told to use it.

......or something like that. I took a look at /var/lib/exim4/config.autogenerated and found that the system_aliases section in there is unchanged (no pipe_transport defined). But the timestamp matches the time I restarted exim. Changing the order of the file and pipe transports was no help either.

Hmm. Do you have a file named /etc/exim4/exim.conf? If so, that's
where you'll need to make that edit. This file is used preferentially
if found.

$ ls /etc/exim4
conf.d               passwd.client           update-exim4.conf.conf~
exim4.conf.template  update-exim4.conf.conf
