There should be a file /etc/init.d/exim which is the shell script used
to start and stop exim. Find the actual line which starts it and add the
required options.  There may be a variable set at the begining of the
file (OPTIONS=) or the options may be loaded from a sysconfig file
(/etc/sysconfig/exim ?)
