Replacing smail w/exim
I'm presently running my system with smail. What I'd like to do is
to convert to an easier to configure and more capable MTA, which I
believe is exim (correct me if I'm wrong:-).
However, I'm in a catch-22. dselect/dpkg won't allow me to remove
smail because so many packages depend on it. And, dselect/dpkg won't
allow me to install exim because smail already exists.
Could someone give me some tips on the "proper" way to accomplish
such a switch? Is there a way to override dselect/dpkg's dependencies
for such circumstances? Thanks in advance.
