yes, that's a perfect solution.....for those who choose to use exim.  it
does absolutely nothing at all for those who prefer to use sendmail.

BTW, the fact that you don't understand sendmail doesn't prevent others
from doing so. sendmail really isn't that difficult, and is simpler in
some ways because you don't have multiple config files scattered across
multiple directories.

sendmail.mc and the sendmailconfig script are mind-bogglingly simple to
use, and will get a working configuration for 99% of cases in a minute
or two.
