I ended up having so much trouble that I switched to sendmail. I
received a message that the latest exim now understands -ooe .
There were many other problems, and I didn't need to find out how
many. I am giving up. If anyone wants a more detailed list of what I've
found so far, let me know.
1. when including an address file, exim wants commas for
separators. majordomo uses none.
2. exim wants a gid and uid to run 'custom' delivery processes,
such as majordomo. You could use the 'local_part' variable, but this is
'majordomo' which is an alias for a pipe to a process, and not 'majordom'
which is the user name with a gid and uid . I don't know a robust way to
fix this, but its probably easy.
3. All of the sendmail flags in the standard majordomo config
file broke exim, so I simply removed them.
