You ask a dozen people, you get a dozen answers, I am also running exim 4,
however I compiled it myself from sources.

I have been running exim since the FC4 (FC3?) and have been quite happy
with it.  I am also using imap and pop3 as well as TLS with a self signed
certificate.

I also installed ClamAV and spamassassin on the system to which exim uses
and all seems to work fine.
