I know exim is very popular among debian users. I'm just looking for
something that has better usability.
exim works flawlessly when I don't need SMTP auth., but with the SMTP auth
turned on it will cause a lot of trouble. The following happens too often:
authentication fails (according to server) and a mail delivery failed message
is sent to the sender, which gets frozen. Similar things happen whenever it
fails to send a message, it's just unpredictable and not sufficiently
I feel that sendmail is a much better MTA, but I don't like the way it's
configured. I specified SMTP PLAIN auth once, and when it didn't work I gave
up. I'm just waiting for KMail which supports SMTP auth. to stabilize now. No
more exim, god bless KDE.
