It's in there. In fact it was in there twice, so I removed one.

I have one line in inetd.conf with smpt and exim in it this is it:
smtp stream tcp nowait mail /usr/sbin/exim exim -bs
Is this all I need there?
I'm running potato btw, if that matters. I just did an update/upgrade
and a new exim was installed, but that didn't change things :(
BTW, that strange error message seems to come from exim. I found a
section in the exim.conf file that looks a lot like it.
