exim can't read the config file.

a: reinstall exim write down the permissions and owner that file should have
b: examine the source, search for that error message, figure out why
it's printing, find a way to stop that happening.
c: try chmod 644 /etc/exim/exim.conf I can't see why exim would need
write access to that file. And if the file contains no sensitive
information (eg database passwords) making it world readable will do
no harm. Also try chmod 755 /etc/exim/ exim could be producing a
misleading error message.
