If you are getting the above error on the exim_mainlog and the exim is not starting, it is most probably due to the port 25 is being used by another process.
You can find it using the following command.
netstat -pln | grep :25
Except for Exim email service, you can terminate any other process or service which is bind to port 25.
Then restart exim using the following command.
service exim restart
