    Take a look at Sendmail configuration some time.  Early in its
development they made concessions in the configuration format that made it
convenient for the program to parse it, not the human.  To this day they have
not shrugged off that legacy.  It is so bad that to effectively and
efficiently configure sendmail you have to use a seperate macro language and
then compile it into the configuration file!

    Exim is quite straight forward for anyone who takes the time to sit down
and read the docs and try to understand it.
