I'm trying to understand and fix at least one tainted statement within exim and I don't understand how it is supposed to be quoted.

The line I believe is causing the grief is:

domainlist local_domains = @:domain1.org:domain2.org:domain2.org:\
         pgsql;select domain from virtdomains where domain='$domain'

The output it provides when running exim -C /etc/exim/exim.conf -d+all -bv [email protected] is below.

I'm sure it is something simple, but I didn't set this up but now trying to learn now to maintain it and this is preventing me from upgrading.

I am hoping after four months you solved this, but just in case... I am going through this with MySQL queries at the moment. You can fix the query itself by quoting the 'domain' parameter in your where clause:

domainlist local_domains = @:domain1.org:domain2.org:domain2.org:\
         pgsql;select domain from virtdomains where domain='${quote_pgsql:$domain}'

The issue I am having is that result itself is considered tainted :P
