Example (for those who like using _sn_ as a news transport):
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = news
group = news
server = /usr/bin/env
server_args = POSTING_OK=1 PATH=/usr/sbin/:/usr/bin:/sbin/:/bin /usr/sbin/snntpd logger -p news.info
bind = 127.0.0.1
However, you can also do exactly the same thing in exim.conf itself -
OTTOMH the directive is `local_interfaces', BICBW.
