Gentoo: How to debug Exim

If you have some problem with exim, and the logs are not enough, edit the /etc/conf.d/exim file, and add the debugging option (-d):

/etc/conf.d/exim
# Command-line options for running exim
EXIM_OPTS="-bd -q15m -d"

Then restart exim:

# /etc/init.d/exim restart

The exim daemon will not be detached from the console, the debug information will be printed to the standard output. Good luck!
