If anything that is the worst part of exim :| It's configuration format
still seems complicated to me. vmailer would be a good choice if it has
a simple configuration that doesn't need alot of sophistation to
understand. This is something I've always thought qmail did well.
I don't think that the default mailer should necessarly be the mailer that
everyone can use for everything, there is some advantage to having a
simple mailer for simple needs.
