Might be /etc/default/exim4

Debian's long-term support dictates they need to actively maintain  
both Exim 3 and Exim 4.  So all newer Debian-based distro's have the  
"4" appended to the Exim 4 files/scripts etc to distinguish them from  
their Exim 3 counter parts.  I might have overlooked that distinction  
when I wrote the original Exim+MailScanner+Debian instructions all  
those years ago :P
