I think you could have skipped the Postfix step - installing it and then 
replacing it, that is.  Have you tried dpkg --configure or 
dpkg-reconfigure?

You may need to actually go into the update-exim4.conf.conf file and do 
it by hand.

If you've not looked at it, it should be something like this:

dc_eximconfig_configtype='local' (maybe 'smarthost' if you need smtp to 
an ISP)
dc_other_hostnames='xxx.xx'
dc_local_interfaces='0.0.0.0'
dc_readhost=''
dc_relay_domains=''
dc_minimaldns='false'
dc_relay_nets=''
dc_smarthost=''
CFILEMODE='644'
dc_use_split_config='false'
dc_hide_mailname='false'
dc_mailname_in_oh='true'
dc_localdelivery='maildir_home'


Then run "update-exim4.conf'
