Sorry for the delay in responding.  I've been on the road and unable
to access my Fedora box.  So after a little grief with SELinux and
permissions I have a log file of exim.  I'd post it here but it's 724
lines long.  I looked for boot in the file but came up empty.  Is
there some snippet of the file that I could post?
