Exim and fetchmail are two seperate programs, so they are independent from 
each other.
Try running fetchmail from your bash prompt by hand with the -v option to 
see what happens.
Even with a configuration file, you must make sure that fetchmail is ran.
You can not just create the .fetchmailrc file and wait for the mail to 
come in.
You need to give the command:
For exim, check your logfile as root.
It is in /var/log/exim4/mainlog
