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.
