Hi Dominic and Users,

I was not using the split configuration of exim4, I'm using the monolithic
config at /etc/exim4/exim4.conf.template. So I added this line to my
/etc/exim4/exim4.conf.template config file right at the top "local_scan_path
= /usr/lib/exim4/local_scan/" restarted exim4 and I'm seeing SA
entries in my /var/log/exim4/main.log. I then did a "grep sa-exim
/var/lib/exim4/config.autogenerated" and the results obviously was
"local_scan_path = /usr/lib/exim4/local_scan/".

I really appreciate the help here guys, and I'm very happy that I'm one step
forward now.
