It isn't run by a cron job in the default install--rather,
a -q<time> is passed on the command line which
tells exim how often to launch queue-runners.
Make sure that the "queue_remote_domains"
option is not set in your exim.conf (also that the
-odqr option is not passed on the cmd line).
queue_remote_domains is used to reduce the
number of connections to remote hosts but it
is not really useful for workstations.
