Absolutely!  A large part of the value of Linux is that it
provides workstation capabilities at the price of a "desktop"
machine.  If Debian were dumbed down so far that it no longer
gave the advantages that come with a *nix workstation, why would
anyone choose Debian?

To get back on topic - in my opinion, Debian needs an MTA in a
default installation.  As for the particular beast, exim or
something else, I'll leave that to folks who know more about it
than I do, but, please, let's make sure that something is always
