is just "root".

Not in my experience. My root mail, which does get delivered says:

# mail -s test root
# mail
Heirloom mailx version 12.5 7/5/10. Type ? for help.
"/var/spool/mail/root": 1 message 1 new
N 1 root@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Mon Sep 25 11:56 18/542 test
? q
Held 1 message in /var/spool/mail/root
# host acer-suse.lan
acer-suse.lan has address
Host acer-suse.lan not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

You're right, the address is canonicalized / hostname auto-appended.
In /etc/postfix/ I'll bet you have "myhostname = acer-suse.lan" ?
Maybe that is what Dave Plater is missing in his exim config.
