exim -qf and/or  exim -qff will send all mail from the queue. If I remember
they both are blocking, i.e. will only return when all messages got send.

I'm not sure how they work, if another queue run is running already (as is
started in /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/ iirc.

If they are only blocking when they are the only queue run you might
consider removing /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/exim and then call exim -qf by hand and
disconnect afterwards.



PGP encrypted messages preferred.
