I got a little stuck with "exactly" in the word order:

Don't doubt about me, I will exactly come to the party!

Where should I put it? Can it be:

Don't doubt about me, I exactly will come to the party! ?

Or even at the end:

Don't doubt about me, I will come to the party exactly! ?

To be on the safe side it's possible to use "shall":

Don't doubt about me, I shall come to the party!

I'd heard it wasn't used much anymore in the sense of some guarantee, high determination and so on but I got some comment that it was possible and possible with "I, we", too, not only with "you, he, she, it, they". Though it's a different thread.

    merriam-webster.com/dictionary/exactly Your sentences are not grammatical. Please check dictionaries. – Lambie Oct 5 '19 at 14:18
  • I think those sentences are grammatical, but the word choice isn't as felicitous, rendering them unidiomatic / nonnative / unclear. I think you want definitely, and you can sort of put it anywhere: I'll / I will definitely come..., I definitely will come... (with the emphasis being borne by will), I'll come to the party – definitely, (as a sort of afterthought, where a dash or some stronger kind of pause indicator is needed, in my opinion). – userr2684291 Oct 5 '19 at 14:36
  • "Don't doubt about me" is very strange. – AIQ Oct 5 '19 at 19:24
  • Is "Don't have nay doubs about me" better? – Michael Azarenko Oct 6 '19 at 16:09
