This line should be in your exim.conf:
host_accept_relay = localhost
The deamon can run on port 25 because this setting will refuse to
accept mails from other hosts than your localhost. If you don't want
other hosts to connect to 25 in the first place, have a look at
/etc/hosts.allow and .deny

May I ask why you want outgoing mail to be sent through port 6025?
