The /etc/init.d/ directory contains scripts for starting, stopping,
and reloading daemons. for example running:
"/etc/init.d/exim reload" - will reload exim
"/etc/init.d/exim stop" - will stop exim
"/etc/init.d/exim start"- will start exim
To send a signal to a process, you use the kill or killall command,
and add the signal name at the end, so to send a HUP signal to exim,
use "killall -HUP exim".
Take a look at the man pages for these commands.
