It would be really helpful if you could tell exactly how you 
configured exim.

Would be helpful to see whats in /var/log/exim4/paniclog .

Telnet shouldn't be running normally. Would be good to know what else 
you've got installed (fail2ban or sth similar?).

You can read (and write to) the filesystem of your slug when you pull out 
the usb-stick where you installed debian (after shutdown ...) and mount it 
on a pc with linux (a live-system or a virtual machine will also do).

But without knowing what exactly you did before it will not be easy to get 
an idea how to repair.
