Sorry for the noise about the obfuscated IP address.
It sounds like you have exim set to deliver mail to /var/mail/(username).
Then you should set in your dovecot.conf:
mail_location = mbox:/var/mail/%u
Or, if you want other mbox folders to appear in ~/mail:
mail_location = mbox:~/mail:INBOX=/var/mail/%u
For full details, see: http://wiki.dovecot.org/MailLocation
