You should be running two instances of Exim, one with the "-bd" option and no 
"-q15m" option, and the other one with the "-q15m" option and no "-bd" option.

The one with "-bd" will be listening on port 25; the one without that option 
will not attempt to bind to the port.

See the paragraphs under "Running Exim" about halfway down the documentation 
recommended by Warwick:
