    mailnull is the exim user

    [root@server ~]# exim -bP exim_user
    exim_user = mailnull
    [root@server ~]

    It is set as mailnull as it is a non-privileged user, ie it does not have root privileges. Its done as a security measure. If you see a lot of processes with user mailnull, change the catchall account of accounts to :fail:
