Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have setup Exim and Teapop, and mail is going into my server from other people, and I can send mail out, but the problem is, when mail comes into the server, it just sits in the "/var/spool/exim/input" folder and doesnt get delived to (I think its supposed to be) "/var/mail/username" folder, thus its all just piling up (currently 1036 mails).
i'm not too hot with the intricacies of exim yet, but you'ev commented out the mail delivery group, which might be causing problems, moreover though... log files, you'll probably be screaming for attention.
well exmion should be in the same directory as the exim executable, the default location is /usr/exim/bin/eximon form a source install... if you can't find it, try whereis eximon or updatedb and then locate eximon.
If I try and send it to any of the other user accounts I just get......
550 unknown user
Even though they have an account with password set etc. Is there something else I need to do to their accounts before hand?
Also I have searched but cant find out how I can specify email aliases either (NOT domain aliases). Well, how to change it, as it says add the aliases to /etc/aliases but then how does it know who to send it to?
That's the right syntax. I noticed above that you're editing /etc/aliases, but I think exim is looking for /etc/mail/aliases. I'm not sure though. I think I saw this in your exim.conf, but the link is down now.
