    There's not a easy way to do this..either uninstall it, or let it run.

    Go on, have a guess
    Probably the easiest way to disable it would be to:

    1. Copy the existing /etc/exim.conf and /etc/exim_outgoing.conf to a safe place.

    2. Delete /etc/exim_outgoing.conf

    3. Run the rebuild script:
    /scripts/buildeximconf

    Then stop and start exim:
    /etc/init.d/exim stop
    /etc/init.d/exim start

    To revert, simply copy the safe files back from 1. and then restart exim:

    /etc/init.d/exim stop
    /etc/init.d/exim start

    I just tried this myself and it worked.
