Not a DNS problem.

It actually looks like you may not be running exim_tidydb. Do you have
the most up-to-date instructions in which that is mentioned?

Use "exim_tidydb -t 0d /var/spool/ retry" or similar, depending on
what you've called your incoming queue. And run it more often than your
retry timeout (like once a day is usually good enough).
