Re: Hamm: Exim + Chos standard?

With what addition? Last time I really tried it, it was only working with some
additions like rsmtp (as I mentioned, btw) and no bangs.

Exim is (this news is also old) not capable of bang paths or uucp, just using
rsmtp works fine, though it's not sure if it all works.

If Exim comes with an rmail wrapper script, all is fine.

standard uucp needs it, rsmtp not really any more, a mailertable or pathalias-
table (smail) is enough, somewhat.
