/var/log/exim4/mainlog shows nothing I deem useful.
Lots of stuff like:
2014-07-18 07:53:14 Start queue run: pid=13117
2014-07-18 07:53:14 End queue run: pid=13117
2014-07-18 08:23:14 Start queue run: pid=14426
2014-07-18 08:23:14 End queue run: pid=14426

/var/log/mail.{log,warn,info,error} are all empty, and the older files
(mail.*.1) show nothing since Nov 5 of last year.

So, the logs aren't proving particularly helpful.
