I may be perverse but in some ways exim4 is simpler in that instead of
directors, routers and transports, you only have routers and transports
to deal with.

Although the multiplicity of sections in the exim4 conf file seems
belwildering, there are only bits of it that you need to change.

If you find the entry for smarthost and append :port_no to it, that
might work?

However, if exim3 works for you, fair enough ;)
