Your cron daemon is telling you it had a problem with rotating your syslog. /etc/cron would probably be a good place to start looking for config options.

cron is a daemon that you use to run tasks at a predetermined time.

cron usually runs as a user, which one depends on your setup. It looks like yours expects "debain-exim" to exist...
