[Pkg-exim4-users] What does exim4 need after the network connection changes?

I use my laptop with two different mail setups, depending on the network
I'm in.  To achieve this, I change the target of the symlink
/etc/exim4/update-exim4.conf.conf, and call "/etc/init.d/exim4 restart"

This usesd to work fine in sarge, but now in etch, it seems that this is
not enough to make exim play nicely.  The problem is that sending mail
(from gnus) takes very long after the network switch (and up to the next
reboot).  I tried to quit gnus and emacs to make sure that the problem
is not on the side of the MUA, and it persisted.

I observe the same behavior when the interface is up and a route
configured, but there's actually no connectivity (e.g. because a WLAN
connection was dropped).  I don't complain in that case, just as a point
of information.

What can I do to make the switch smoother?
