To be fair, on Linux it *can* be *only* Mozilla. Or *only*
XEmacs/GNUS, or *only* evolution, etc.
By using exim you have chosen a more complicated solution than the
minimum required to read email from a POP server. Presumably you have
a reason for doing this, and the additional complexity will pay off
(if only to educate you on a full mail system works through transfer,
delivery and user agents). You could always leave exim configured for
a "sattelite" system and make sure no mail is delivered locally, or
just ignore it and choose the "mail is delivered locally only" option.
