I also JUST noticed that when I do a "ps aux | grep exim" there aren't
any exim processes running! So I went to \etc\init.d\ and run "./exim4
start". It reports that it is starting the MTA... No error messages are
reported. However doing a "ps" still doesn't show any exim processes!
There are no errors in syslog related to exim not starting that I can

well... I don't know what to tell you. Couple things you could try.
First, can you get to the net from this machine? I know its basic, but
Also, edit /etc/default/exim4 and put a QUEUERUNNEROPTION='-d' in there,
restart exim4 and look at all the pretty output and see if you can see
why its not routeing the address.
also look at man exim as there are a number of options for running exim
in various debugging modes that might help.
I've never had a problem with exim... it mostly just works for me in a
number of configurations, so without sitting down and seeing _exactly_
how its configured, I'm out of ideas.
