Having cleared the spool, what's the problem?

You'd initially written saying you had frozen messages in your queue.
You've deleted your queue, there can be no frozen messages, so what's
going wrong now?

If it's general exim problems, try running the daemon in debug mode:

    $ exim -d<0-11>

Otherwise, specify your problems and/or log output (you've checked
logfiles, right?).

Cheers.
