I second this. qmail is known to perform better under load because it
doesn't fork (and I actually like it because of the maildir concept -
no locks!), but exim is still easier to configure. And exim's support
is superb. One time, it took Philip a mere 38 minutes to produce a
(working!) fix for an obscure bug that I have been experiencing.
_This_ is what I call supported software.
