I don't quite understand.
To use the exim filter functions, one uses a .forward like
# Exim filter <<== necessary for to recognise the format
if $header_x-mailing-list matches <debian-(.*)@lists\\.debian\\.org>
if personal alias email@example.com alias firstname.lastname@example.org
unseen deliver email@example.com
Exim could also be configured to use .procmail, if the user has a
.procmailrc, rpocmail is available and there is no .forward.

Whatever, I won't restart this thread again. I wouldn't touch wuftp
with a 10ft pole. I switched to proftpd, when there was a hole in many
ftpds (creating a very deep directory hierarchy), the fix for proftpd
was available after 1-2 days, but for wuftp, it took 2 weeks. Is there
an upstream maintainer for wuftpd?
