Well, that has got nothing to do with exim. Exim is a MTA, it
*delievers* mail and doesn't fetch it.
To fetch mail use fetchmail ;) Configuring fetchmail is pretty
easy. Install it by apt-get (if it not installed already) and create a
file called ~/.fetchmailrc

poll your.mail.server proto POP3 user your.user password XXX

If you also want to deliever mail, then you should specify a so called
"smarthost" in your exim.conf - which is your ISP's SMTP-Server.
