Well, it's what may keep me from using it on my ISP, whose postmaster I've  
lately become.

I'll have to see if this can be worked around, because otherwise Exim  
seems to be just what we need - but handling UUCP is absolutely essential.  
All non-IP accounts are UUCP, and some of the IP people still use UUCP for  
news&mail (like me, for example) - we'd actually prefer if everyone did..

Of course, this is not the full, use-the-worldmap, version, so maybe it  
will be doable with only a few scripts and stuff. Grumble ...
