Running Exim

Although it's not used by as many major Linux distributions as sendmail or Postfix, Exim is roughly comparable to its competing mail servers in capabilities. Like Postfix, Exim uses a single major configuration file that's well commented. This file is called /etc/exim/exim.conf on Debian, the one major distribution to use this server. When you install Exim on Debian, the package management system runs a script, eximconfig, that asks a series of questions to set the default values in the Exim configuration file. Naturally, you can change the configuration at a later time, either by editing exim.conf directly or by running eximconfig manually.
