    Go on, have a guess
    You're either being mail bombed, or you've added some ACL's into the exim configuration that use the delay function - which is a very bad idea for this very reason. A simply step would be to run:

    cd /etc
    mv exim.conf.local exim.conf.local.old
    /scripts/buildeximconf
    service exim restart
