A) you run exim in daemon mode

   check with ps ax| grep exim that it is running.
   /etc/init.d/exim restart -> errors?

B) you are running exim from a superdaemon

   check in inetd.conf or xinetd.conf that it is enabled
   kill -SIGHUP `pidof inetd` or xinetd and check the syslog or daemon 
   log for errors

I have set a Reply-to to debian-user as it is the more appropriate
list for this I believe.
