Re: exim frozen messages, can't send/recieve

-well that helped, for some reason my domain got replaced by the
default(?) ** root@debain: unroutable mail domain. I can edit
/etc/exim.conf for that.

| #ps -aux | grep -i "exim"

| exim was listed as a running process when it was working. 

>It depends on how you have it set up to run.

| There is no /var/log/exim.pid, which seems suspicious, only a empty
| directory.

-yeah, sorry that just a typo /var/run/exim has no .pid file 

| if i 'nmap' my box it lists smtp on port 25 as listening which is
| but how come there is no process running(?), if i try to start exim, 
| complains that it can't 'socket bind() to port 25 for address, Address
| already in use'.

To find out what is bound to port 25 :
    # netstat -anp | grep 25

-tcp	0	0*	LISTEN
