I have it running now, using fetchmail, and exim as a daemon (i.e. exim
-bd -qf30) -- forcing it to flush

The issue is that, although I get my messages, exim is sending them to
root as undeliverable.  I'm the postmaster, so that works out, but then
all the mail goes to my Inbox, instead of to the various files (debian,
personal, etc.)  There's a fair pile of mail, so sorting gets old really

Did this.  gave me lots of info, but not what I need.

What I need to know, I think, is how to change what exim thinks is my
user id number.  Can I do that by uninstalling (& purging?) and
reinstalling?  Surely if it starts anew with an established set of user
ids, it ahould ppick up on those.

Yes -- not much help, except to confirm that the mail is being sent to
