Incoming mail not recieved in Exim on Debian

I have a relatively old Apple Powermac running Debian PPC (stable) as a server. I recently have been trying to get Exim to work as my mail server, but have been having some difficulty. I am using the SquirrelMail webmail project as a client, running on Apache. I am able to send email from this account to my other cable ISP email account, but when sending email to the exim-served account, the mail is not recieved. I'm relatively new to Linux. I've looked through the config file, but haven't been able to figure it out.

Welcome to LQ.

Does your DNS MX entry resolv to the correct A record for your machine:
dig yourdomain MX

Is the service listening on port 25:
netstat -nlp

Do you have any firewall rule blocking port 25:
iptables -nL
