Bug#402857: please document changes to installer handling of exim4

apologies for the late response...

I've written a new section explaining the default configuration and how to
configure exim4 after the installation. The new section is intended to be
included in chapter 8 which has some "post-installation" information.

A preview of the new text is available at:

Comments/suggestions very welcome.

This looks great!
The only adjustments I would suggest are:

* In the description of "mail sent by smarthost".
  The phrase "which does the actual job for you" has always seemed a
  little unclear to me. I think it could be changed to e.g.
  "which sends the message on to its destination."

* There's no mention of the exim4-doc-* packages. Should there be?
  I found the reference to the full documentation in the README.Debian.gz,
  so perhaps the last sentence could change a little:

    ... the file README.Debian.gz has additional details about configuring
    exim4 and explains how to obtain the full documentation.

I hope these suggestions are helpful, feel free to ignore them.
