try editing your crontab with
and see if there is anything there.
Do you run your exim from xinetd or as a daemon from your init scripts?
If you don't have timed calls to your isp, and have unlimited
time/downloads, why not just bring the link up when you start and drop it
when you finish?
I use pon/poff at home to bring my dialup link up on demand and have no such
problems with the line coming up for no reason. I don't run exim on that
machine though. I could send my configs to you if you wish.
