Thanks everyone for your responses. At present I've switched it off

I'm still not clear on the purpose of exim4. I understand that the
system will on occassion send me a message, but in several months on
Sarge this has never happened. I get all my mail via a pop account -
does exim4 know my address? I've never configured anything that I'm
aware of that would do this. Or does mail get sent somewhere else?
It normally gets sent to /var/mail/<main-user-name>
Or maybe mail is sent so rarely that I just haven't had any yet...
Just run the "mail" command at a command line or examine /var/mail
