Please check if exim reinstallation fixes the problem:
Code:
cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
./build update
./build exim

It didn't gave any error notice after starting so it looks like exim started.

What does
/etc/init.d/exim status
say now?

Just to be sure, could you try this? Maybe it's something with permissions. As root:
Code:
/etc/init.d/exim stop
rm -rf /var/run exim.pid
/etc/init.d/exim start
/etc/init.d/exim status
Same error then or is it starting that way?

Can you also have a look at /var/log/exim/paniclog if there are any entry's?
