Actually make sure it is like this:

# Exim filter

if $header_from: ends "@hcoop.net"
  deliver "yourname at example.com"
else save "/dev/null" 660

I'm pretty sure the quotes around the email address are important.
And saving to /dev/null ensures that other mail is discarded instead of being stored on HCoop.  Take that out if you don't want to, but only if you're going to be cleaning out or transferring mail and spam off of HCoop at some point.
