Cool, OK, I guess I misunderstood what you were saying.  Sorry.

BTW, I don't know of any UUCP site that still uses "bang paths" (there are 
probably still some in existance, I'm sure, but I'd guess they are very rare).

Lemme ask you a few questions about Exim, then:

 * Does it support using procmail as the default system delivery agent?
   (so users need not put it in their .forward files)
 * Does it support a file with compatible layout to /etc/aliases?
   I really don't want to have to rewrite that file as I have *lots* mailing
   lists hosted here.
