    Where would it deliver it?

To your local mailbox, wouldn't it?  Isn't that the default for Exim
in GNU/Linux distros?

Are we talking about the case where Exim has not been configured and
it can only do local delivery?  Or are we talking about the case where
the sysadmin made a mistake in configuring it?
