I would like to know where to find the source code of exim4, with specific version and revision, 4.89-2+deb9u4.

I have executed apt-get source but got an error message:

apt-get source exim4=4.89-2+deb9u4

E: Can not find version '4.89-2+deb9u4' of package 'exim4'

E: Unable to find a source package for exim4

For various other revisions of exim4, I was able to find the source code in this way.

I also found the source repository but it only has the source code of exim4 version 4.89-2+deb9u3~bpo8+1 and 4.89-2+deb9u5, not for 4.89-2+deb9u4.

Does it mean the source code of 4.89-2+deb9u4 is no longer available? Or is there any way to get it?

The source code for that particular version is available on snapshot.debian.org. If you install devscripts you can retrieve it by running

dget http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian-security/20190605T153608Z/pool/updates/main/e/exim4/exim4_4.89-2%2Bdeb9u4.dsc

You can also use the corresponding tag in the Debian package’s repository.
