Default Exim panics

On my Squeeze box, I am getting occasional panics from Exim, due to port
25 being in use. I imagine it's occasionally clashing with Thunderbird:

-------------------------------------------------------------------
exim paniclog /var/log/exim4/paniclog on tony-lx.magpieway.net has
non-zero size, mail system might be broken. The last 10 lines are quoted
below.

Cannot assign requested address: daemon abandoned

2012-04-29 16:55:16 socket bind() to port 25 for address ::1 failed:

-------------------------------------------------------------------

What would be the preferred way of overcoming this problem?

Cheers, Tony

Thunderbird / Icedove will never bind to port 25. And even if it wanted
to, listening on ports < 1024 is only allowed for processes running as
root.

You need to find out the source of the problem. Do you regularly restart
Exim?

One way might be to permanently run a loop like this to find the
culprit (as root):

# while true; do netstat -tlpn | grep :25 ; sleep 10 ; done

Another thing worth mentioning: your Exim always complains about the
IPv6 address ::1 (which equals 127.0.0.1 in IPv4). If you don't use
IPv6, you could try disabling it in Exim.
