I have a machine, like your's, which is set up for dial-on-demand
dialing to my ISP. Exim works fine here and only attempts a connection
itself when there is outgoing mail in the queue. I manually fire up
fetchmail to collect mail from my ISP's POP3 server and, if I have just
written an email, I can manually get Exim to send it which causes my
machine to connect.

Works very nicely here . . .
