2.1.2. Using Exim Macros to control the configuration

For split configuration, you can drop the local configuration file
anywhere in /etc/exim4/conf.d/main. Just make sure it gets read before
the macro is first used. 000_localmacros is a possible name,
guaranteeing first order. For a non-split configuration,
/etc/exim4/exim4.conf.localmacros gets read before

This is a quote from README.Debian.gz. Does it help?
