              List  of IP addresses the Exim daemon should listen on. If this
              is left empty, Exim  listens  on  all  interfaces.  Sets  macro
              MAIN_LOCAL_INTERFACES only if there is a non-empty value.

"left empty" is something other than "must not be set".



instead of completely removing the value. Does that work?
