why don't you use lsof or netstat -a to find out which process is
binding the smtp port. i bet you there is still an exim process around
even though you deleted the package. also, check /etc/inetd.conf again
and *restart* inetd!

send me the output of

  netstat -a | grep LISTEN


  lsof | grep smtp

and i'll have a look.

i use postfix and i've tried all the others
(sendmail,qmail,zmailer,exim) and postfix beats them all!
