How about Section 2.1.4?

It does, however, generate an exim4 configuration from editable input

See README.Debian chapter 1.1

man update-exim4.conf.conf is the configuration file for

I'd suggest setting the SMTP ports on the daemon command line in
/etc/default/exim4. This is, at least, what I usually do.
