Hi Christian -
I can't say what's wrong with this, but if I were in your situation, I'd
take a copy of all the files in /etc/exim, and run eximconfig. Tell it
you want to use a "smarthost", and then look hard at any differences
between the generated /etc/exim/exim.conf and your backup.
Apply these to your backup, replace into /etc/exim, cook for 30 minutes
on gas mark 7, and serve with lashings of cheese.
It may stop, it may not. And stop calling me "dj".
