queue_smtp_domains, if I recall correctly, will only prevent an *immediate*
delivery attempt. Whilst queue_only will work so long as you don't
explicitly tell exim to do a queue run, I'd recommend going further than
that, as documented in the new improved exim+mailscanner installation

Not a conflict; they both co-operate quite happily (always assuming I
haven't written too many bugs into the locking ;), but if exim delivers
a message from the incoming queue, it obviously won't get virus-scanned.
