Which shows exim is not doing much at the moment.

too many instances of the daemon especially when it is apparently not
handling any messages.

I am not sure why but that was not ther reason for your original 'too

As far as I know exim it should kill the idle sub-processes.  

Do you use any other processes that exim may be waiting for to finish
like virus or spam scanning?
